DID YOU KNOW? The oldest technique of Ukrainian embroidery is the nyznyzia, or zanyzuvannia. This is done with red or black thread along the warp (the lengthwise threads) of the linen. The embroiderer works on the reverse side of the cloth and thus makes a negative pattern. The design is developed by advancing thread by thread in a progressive pattern. The threads of the cloth that are thus covered are always odd in number (1, 3, or 5). In theory the technique is simple, but in practice the person who has not done it since childhood can rarely accomplish it proficiently. The most popular method of embroidery today is the cross-stitch. It is of more recent origin but has penetrated into the most remote areas because it made possible, to a large degree, the transition from geometric to floral motifs. The Ukrainian embroiderer has shown great care in the use of the cross-stitch, which easily permits the creation of personal designs. The cross-stitch has become widespread among all European peoples and in Ukrainian embroidery has replaced other, ancient techniques. (excerpt from The Encyclopedia of Ukraine)
