END OF LINE COLOURS

Acorn was drawn and painted around 1966-67 by an unnamed artist in the design studio of Nordiska in Gothenburg, Sweden. In 1970, it was presented in the sales catalogue of The Needlewoman Shop on Regent Street in London, Nordiska’s flagship store out of Scandinavia. We have not yet found the instructional sheet for this kit, and we don’t have more than a photograph of the cushion in a catalogue, but we hope to find both one day. 

Included in this set:


- A hand printed 100% linen panel, 50x50 cm

- A card with a photograph of the original artwork from the Nordiska Archive, an English translation of stitches used, and a brief history of its origins.

- A handy little stitch card which describes the 24 common stitches used by Nordiska in their kits, and it’s an exact copy of the 60’s version, typo and all.

 - From November 2021, we include a small poster chart of the original artwork too.


Linen embroidery always looks better if it is kept unwashed, and we don’t recommend washing this kit. In the 60’s dry cleaning was recommended as you can see on the last image. The print itself is a screen print with permanent colour, so you will need to embroider over the lines. 

We hope you will love to embroider this kit, and we would love to hear from anyone who remembers this kit from the 60’s and 70’s.
