Nordiska of Gothenburg, 1960
Designer: Ingrid Bjernefors-Dahlman
Designed in 1960 for Nordiska of Gothenburg,
Floral Wheel 5962 was originally printed on a 32 x 32 cm linen cloth called Hälsningelinne.

Included in this set is: 


- A 100% linen cloth, 50 x 50 cm. The design itself measures 25 cm in diameter. 
- A stitch card showing the 24 most common 60's linen embroidery stitches,
- A card with a photograph of the original drawing as it was found in the Nordiska Embroidery Archive, with a brief history of it's origins and named stitches. 

The original pattern instructions have not yet been found, we are searching for them and hope to find a copy of the original sheet one day. 
The drawing card shows what stitches were used, and you can easily follow the shades of light and dark when you decide where to add your colours. 

Linen always look best if it isn't washed, and we recommend keeping it as it is, just as Nordiska did in the 1960's. 

We hope you will love this Nordiska treasure just as much as we do!
