Beginner’s Hardanger


Lightning Rounds are three – four rotating courses that are offered quarterly for all EGA members to register for without a group.  This is particularly favorable for Members-At-Large and small EGA chapters that have difficulty filling a larger group in order to take a Group Correspondence Course. Course and text fees are non-refundable. Additional details below.

This quarter’s classes are open for registration through November 30, 2019.

In our Group Correspondence Course Beginner’s Hardanger students will learn the basic techniques of Hardanger with the option of stitching in a solid color or experimenting with Watercolours®.

Elegant and lace-like, Hardanger embroidery is easier to stitch than it appears. Worked in the hand, it is great to take on travels. Hardanger’s basic techniques are clearly explained.
