I've done Hardanger on Aida, but it wasn't easy!  It was a simple design using PC 3 on a small towel with an Aida insert for a border.  I was surprised, but it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be to pull the threads.  But I still wouldn't recommend it if you want to do a larger project.

I never tried it, but I think the best result you can get with evenwave fabric.

Iris: I tried that to see if it would work. Here is the sample.

Here is the same design worked 3 ways: kloster blocks 4x4 threads, kloster blocks 6x6 threads and the one on 14 count aida.

I think it looks OK. But I haven't tried washing it, so I don't know if the structure of the cloth makes it less secure. One problem I did have in working it is that I had to use a thick needle to hold the pearl 3. The needle plus the thread at the eye made a thick node to pull through the cloth. The hole was really too small, so every stitch was a battle to pull the needle through the hole. Very annoying. I doubt I will do that again.  If I want to work that large again, I will try a single weave cloth.

I can't imagine doing Hardanger on Aida fabric, it can't be easy to pull the threads.
