Svenskt Broderi - From gently tonal linen näversöm thread-work, to colorful and glorious floral yllebroderi on tvåändsstickning knitted fabric, Swedish stitchers have developed some of the most unique and magnificent embroidery traditions in the world.

Find out about the history and scope of Sweden's rich heritage of needle craft, and see how a few simple to learn stitches can help you bring a touch of Scandinavia into your own home!

Pat Olski is leading the lecture: She is equally passionate about knitting, crocheting and embroidery. Her written articles and designs reflecting all three have been published in numerous issues of Vogue Knitting, Vogue Knitting Crochet, Knit Simple, Noro, Inspirations Embroidery, and Piecework magazines, as well as in a large variety of needle-craft and knitting books. Pat's newest book “Creating Dorset Buttons” will be released in winter 2019.
