Fiber Talk with Yvette Stanton

Biscornu project from Early Style Hardanger.

This week’s guest is Yvette Stanton of Vetty Creations in Sydney, Australia.Considered by many to be the hobby’s leading whitework expert, she has traveled the world to research various whitework techniques and share their origins and how the stitching is still done today. Yvette has written eight books about stitching and we talk about all of them in the podcast, in addition to a variety of other topics. Her newest book, Early Style Hardanger, is a beautiful and knowledge-packed publication that resulted from her research trip to the Hardangerfjord region in Norway where she learned about the very origins of the stitching technique and how the Norwegian stitchers, to this day, produce some of the most beautiful needlework in the world. Please join us this week and learn about the world of whitework stitching.

  1. Hi Gary, Christine, and Yvette,
    Love your comments. I think, however, you are all forgetting about the revival of geometric by the insurgence of Jean Hilton stitches. She lived in Illinois and created her famous stitches when she made mistakes. I heard her speak about designing her stitches and that with woman working now there was limited time to correct mistakes.. interesting

  2. Mary,
    Thanks for your thoughts and for listening. As I’m sure you’ve heard in our other shows, I’m a big fan of geometric designs and can assure you I appreciate Jean Hilton’s contributions. You’ve given me an idea for an upcoming show topic.

  3. Hi Christine and Gary,

    I am so enjoying your podcasts! I am learning many new and interesting things by listening. You always seem to ask the questions that I would like to have answered.
    I thought of two people that I think would be fantastic interviews. One is Stephanie Pearl – McFee, “The Yarn Harlot”, both a knitter and writer. The other is Trish Burr, an author and known for her beautiful needle painting.
    Again, thank you for your wonderful podcast ,
    Shirley Crockett

  4. This is my favourite talk so far! I love history and whitework embroidery. Thanks for a great interview!
