A Film about Hövej Embroidery

Well, if I did this correctly you will be able to link to a video on YouTube.  The film was made in 1975 and tells about Pócza Margit; she was one of the "masters" at creating Hövej embroidery. She lived from 1909 - 1991.  The narration is in Hungarian, but the pictures speak for themselves!
