Once upon a time, women graced their homes with beautiful linens embellished with hand stitchery of all kinds. Tablecloths, napkins, runners, pillowcases, handkerchiefs and more were a point of pride among women with social standing. In the 1930s and '40s, Swedish weaving and huck embroidery were among the most popular needlecraft techniques. Five simple and easy-to-learn stitches make up this craft, and now you can learn them in just a little over one hour!

Join Swedish weaving and huck embroidery expert Katherine Kennedy and discover for yourself the ease and elegance of this craft. Katherine explains in detail which fabrics, threads and needles are suitable for Swedish weaving and huck embroidery. Then, she demonstrates each basic stitch step by step as you follow along.

In this class you'll learn how to:
  • Choose fabrics, threads and needles for stitching projects.
  • Work the basic stitches including the straight stitch, slant stitch, loop stitch, double-loop stitch and twisted loop stitch.
  • Read a Swedish weave and huck embroidery chart.
  • Work loop stitches into letters or shapes to add personalization.
  • Finish projects with a pretty, multicolored fringed edge.
  • Stitch a holiday ornament from start to finish during the video.
Class includes complete instructions to make eight exclusive projects from five Swedish weave and huck embroidery designs: Crossroads Runner and Afghan, Tulip Wheel Place Mat & Napkin Ring, Skylark Tote, Arrowhead Towel, and the Holiday Charm Ornament & Card.

Hello, I love the class the instructor is very knowledgeable and knows the craft very well. Sometimes the video looks blurry and cuts off a little but overall is a great class I'm happy with the purchase. I do have a question what kind of material is Cordonne I don't know if I'm spelling the word the right way, but I'm interested in that thread or yarn but I can't find any information. I'll appreciate it if the instructor shares that information. Thank you very much.

I loved this class! Katherine Kennedy explained and demonstrated the techniques well and I was able to pick up on the stitches quickly. Since I took the class two weeks ago, I've already finished the Holiday Charm ornament in the blue and white colorway, and have the materials ordered for the Crossroads Runner. Plus, I have some vintage Huck Embroidery patterns passed on by a friend whose grandmother had passed away, and I was able to make a special towel for him using one of the patterns from her book. I'm truly addicted already (am already working on a second towel from the vintage book) and can't thank you enough for teaching this lifelong needleworker a new, fun skill. Thank you!

Ms. Kennedy moves too fast and did not explain certain techniques very well. I understand that it is easy to her, but every time she told me how easy it was, I felt like I was stupid for still having questions. My main desire was to learn how to read the patterns - what stitches went where, how to count the stitches, etc. Still don't understand.

Great tutorial! It was easy for me to follow, and I learned the Nun stitch. I now use this stitch to finish my projects. I am starting on a Crossroads afghan as my next Swedish weaving adventure.
