Kit contains 1960's Nordiska print on contemporary linen (Mid / Denim Blue), measuring approx 50 x 50cm, 7 x 14m skiens of linen threads (colours as shown). Two printed cards are included: one card with a photograph of the original artwork, an English translation of stitches used, and a brief history of its origins. The other card describes the 24 common stitches used by Nordiska in their kits.
The Swedish embroidery company Nordiska/NIAB was founded in 1879 and designed patterns for over 100 years. Their archive was recently unearthed to reveal thousands of embroidery patterns for all season.
Very few instructions have survived time, therefore these kits invite you to improvise with colours and stitches.
When first published, Circe 6503 was printed on blue linen and embroidered with white cotton thread. So far, the original pattern chart for this kit has not been found, and you will need to decide where to add the colours and stitches.
