Nordiska of Gothenburg, 1964

By Ingrid Bjernefors-Dahlman. Originally a small table cloth to place a vase of flowers on, we have printed Whimsical Flora on a slightly larger linen to allow for more ideas, for example a small cushion, bag or wall hanging. 

Included in this kit: 

- Hand printed Whimsical Flora pattern on natural linen, 37.5 x 40 cm

The print itself measures

 19 x 18 cm. 

- 5 colours of linen embroidery thread in the original green, blue and white of the design. 

- A chenille needle size 22. 

- A handy stitch card showing the 24 common stitches used in Nordiska’s embroidery. The stitches used in this kit are 

stem stitch - satin stitch - lazy daisy and seed stitch. 

- A card copy of the original instructions from the 1960's 

- A printed photograph of the Nordiska Archive Linnaeus drawing from 1964. On the reverse it notes the stitches, with a brief history of the origins of the design. 

This kit is suitable for beginners with easy to follow instructions, and a great way to get to know linen embroidery.
