Hedebo Stitch

Hedebo embroidery, which originated and was used almost exclusively in Denmark, is probably one of the least known embroidery techniques, although one of the most beautiful. Few books give instructions in Hedebo and references are scarce. It is an advanced and intricate form of embroidery, taking patience and precision for execution, and because motifs and patterns are small and irregular it is seldom seen or used.
