Fine Linen, hand printed  37 x 65 cm and 1960s instructions are included. 

Without threads


Nordiska of Gothenburg, 1960's

Designer: Ingrid Bjernefors Dahlman
Name: Vepa 8783 Gulsparv / Sparrows
Original colour: Brown linen with linen threads in yellows, grey, brown, green and black. 

Designed in the early 1960's at Nordiska of Gothenburg, Sparrows 8783 was originally printed on a 37 x 63 cm linen cloth called Moralinne.

We have kept the same measurements for the contemporary linen print

The design itself measures 47 cm in diameter. 

Included in this set is: 

A 100% linen cloth, hand printed with Nordiska's Sparrows design.

- A stitch card showing the 24 most common 60's linen embroidery stitches. This card is an exact copy of Nordiska's 60's stitch card, once written on a 60's typewriter in Nordiska's headquarters in Gothenburg. 

The original pattern instructions were found in the Nordiska archive and will be included. It is a larger sheet showing exactly where to add your stitches, so it's good for anyone who does not want to improvise too much.
