Nordiska of Gothenburg, 1968
Designer: Kaisa Edström
This kit includes:
- A beautiful 100% linen panel, 50 x 50 cm.
The linen is hand cut and hand printed in Sweden, then folded and packed in our studio in Bristol where we also prepare all the linen threads.
- A handy stitch card with the 24 common stitches used by Nordiska in their kits, an exact copy of Nordiska's own presentation, written on a typewriter in Gothenburg in the 1950's.
- A very rare, complete sheet of the original stitch chart, A3 size. The colour/stitch instruction sheet is an exact copy of the 1960s original, including the 1960's colour numbers.
The stitches used in Three Little Maids are clearly marked in the drawing as you can see here in the listing.
The printed lines are permanent, so cover the lines with the thread, either by stitching around the lines, over the lines, or through. Whatever technique you prefer is the right one!
The photos above shows the 60's original panel, and Kaisa's original drawing made in the Nordiska studio.
If you would like to learn more about the flax plant and it's fibre which gives us linen thread, we recommend starting at one of the many excellent museum resources, for example V&A HERE .
