Parna in the Media

Delicious magazine borrowed some of the embroidered Transylvanian pieces for their "Christmas Lunch" shoot. They showed a long wallhanging with a pomegranate design a a table runner and a lovely red and white piece, woven uing a kelim technique, as a table cloth

BBCs DIY SOS bought some grain sacks for a house they were renovating in Anglessey, Wales. I think it was screened this weekend but I am away from the UK so missed it.
Coast Magazine feature a vintage linen sheet which they had embroidered and is now hanging in a shop window in Brighton!
