Nordiska of Gothenburg, 1964
Designer: Kaisa Edström
Name: Lysduk 8734
Original colour: Green/Brown
Originally a small table cloth of 36 x 36 cm,
we have printed Kaisa's lively pattern on a beautiful linen cloth, 100 cm x 50 cm, to make a complete cushion of 45 x 45 cm.
We came very near the original thread colours for this pattern,
10 colours were used both in the original and the contemporary kit.
A copy of the original instructional sheet, translated into both English and German from the Swedish original, will be included in the kit together with all the linen threads, a stitch card and three chenille needles.
Six stitches are used in this kit:
Stem stitch, satin stitch, chain stitch, blanket stitch, lazy Daisy stitch and split stitch.
This is a good kit for anyone who likes to have exact instructions of how to embroider the Nordiska 60's designs, all needed is to decide where to add the colours as these are slightly different from the Nordiska original.
Please note that the fabric is hand cut, machine printed, and the design is centred by the printer to make a 45 x 45 cushion, but there may still be a little extra material on one of the sides.
