These Swedish Embroidery Panels are so gorgeous, even if you've never embroidered, you're going to be inspired to start! Originally designed by the classic Swedish needlework supplier, Nordiska, these reprints of their 1960s designs look as fresh now as they did then, a little bit quirky, expertly rendered, and totally beautiful! Created in a collaboration between Nordiska's archive, Studio Flax, and Purl Soho, each design starts with a hand drawn image that is used to hand screenprint onto 100% linen fabric (whose natural color may vary slightly)... No machines or computers here! Every panel comes with a pattern that shows color placement and includes a list of the stitches used. And for more detailed information about which stitches we used where, just scroll down to Product Details for a free supplemental Stitch Guide.
Also from Studio Flax and Purl Soho, the accompanying Linen Embroidery Thread Set includes ten 15-yard skeins in ten colors. A beautiful replication of the vintage threads and colors originally created by Nordiska, this 100% linen thread creates lovely stitch definition in colors that absolutely glow! For best results, we recommend using a size 22 chenille needle and 15-20 inch lengths of thread. As you get to the end of each length, giving it a little twist or rubbing it with some beeswax will help keep the thread nice and smooth
