        Background Information on RUSHNYKY
                   
Beside cross stitch a common embroider technique used especially in the long and narrow runners (rushnyky) is called Swedish or huck weaving. The Ukrainian term used is ny-zyn-ka meaning "low".  
                 Rushnyky are very commonly used in all forms of ceremonial rituals. I observed on the engagement of my young relative that she began to embroider a rushnyk for her future husband as a sign of marriage commitment. At the wedding ceremony the young couple bridal couple then stood on the embroidered rushnyk.  Midway through the liturgy the bridal couple's hands are joined together and tied with a shorter rushnyk as a symbol of their devotion to each other forever. In addition to the rushnyky being used in wedding ceremonies,  they are hung over icon pictures at home or in church; given away at funerals to pallbearers, grave diggers, cooks and other helpers.
