Designed in 1960 by Nordiska of Gothenburg, Table Mat 5962 measures 25 cm in diameter. The linen panel size varies but all will be large enough to make a 45 x 45 cm cushion front with a centered design. For backing we suggest denim, vintage linen, tweed or any other fabric you have at home. It would of course also be lovely as a table mat, as it was intended to become back in the 60's.
There are 8 colours included in the kit, and we will email out more detailed instructions to each person who buys this kit. The sample pictured here is embroidered with real vintage linen threads, threads that are now out of stock. We have chosen the nearest we had in contemporary thread: 7 colours of the kit here is contemporary linen, so a slightly different shade. One skein is an original 60s linblomman brand.
Two instructional cards are included, one showing the 24 common sticthes used in 60's linen embroidery, and the other shows a drawing of this design found in the Nordiska Embroidery Archive, with a brief history of it's origins.
There are 20 kits available at a discounted price for @threadfestival on Instagram.
