    Huck embroidary is also known as Swedish Embroidary.. It was used in the 1940s to decorate the borders of Huck towels with embroidery floss. Today it is used for afghans, placemats, table runners, pillows, and more. Swedish weaving can be done on a variety of even-weave fabrics including huck toweling, monk’s cloth, and Aida cloth. Swedish weaving is unique in that you only work on the front side of the fabric and the stitching does not show on the back. Traditional Swedish weaving designs are usually mirror images
    Most of friends might have seen, done this embroidary.
    Even in my schooldays i had done this embroidary.
    Star, fish, tower likewise i too had done a lot. But doenot have any model now.
    This is also like counted thread embroidary.
    Likewise drawing kolam we can use our imagination in this stitch.
    No particular design or regulations are there for this embroidary.
    But guys who ever knows about this embroidary can tell here about it.
    Here is the samples i had done now with my own imagination.
