    In 70's and 80's there was an embroidery type taught in the schools. I think the main type of the embroidery was called huck or Swedish weave. The sequins were added to the last layer. Does anyone know about it?
    I saw the batwa bag made using that embroidery type at , MY SONPARI: Dori Bags (mom's work)
