About the Author:

Dorothy Wood has a degree in embroidery and textiles and is the author of a number of books on these subjects. She also contributes regularly to stitching magazines, such as Crafts Beautiful, The World of Cross Stitch and Beautiful Stitches. She lives in Osgathorpe, Leicestershire, with her husband and three children.

From Library Journal:

Contemporary hardanger, associated with the Hardanger region of Norway, is a white-work technique that uses counted and drawn threadwork and needleweaving techniques to create geometric patterns. Although a number of hardanger embroidery pattern books are available through needlework shops, hardcover hardanger embroidery books suited to library use are few and far between. Even if this were not the case, Wood's new book would be worth serious consideration. While it is a project book, it also contains ample instructions, making it a good choice for those wishing to learn this technique on their own. An excellent choice for public libraries.
