Earlier this week, I reviewed this very instructive and thorough Hedebo embroidery book – Guida al Ricamo Hedebo – and today, compliments of Stephania Bressan, I’m giving away a copy.
If you’d like a chance to win your own copy to add to your needlework library, read on…
I have to admit, my favorite elements in Hedebo embroidery are these little rings – these little detached wheels that are made individually and then attached to each other and then to the linen, usually as part of a border treatment, but sometimes, as an insert. I love them!
Down the road, I’ll tell you all about them and how they’re made. There’s a special tool involved, and I absolutely love mine, though I’ve only used it two or three times for Hedebo rings (though I have used it for other things!). So, next time we talk about tools, the Hedebo gauge will take center stage.
In the meantime, though, having your own copy of Ricamo Hedebo will help you figure out how the rings are made all on your own. So, enter today’s give-away, and who knows? A copy may end up in your mailbox in a couple weeks!

Just a note: please keep in mind that the book is written in Italian. However, the diagrams and photos used in the book make the instruction on the technique very accessible, even if you don’t speak a lick of Italian.
