Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Stumpwork (RSN Essential Stitch Guides) (Spiral-bound)
Seventeenth century embroidery has always fascinated me. Having seen examples of stump work in National Trust houses and museums I have always wanted to try it but never had time! The book is beautifully illustrated with modern examples of the art as well as museum pieces. The text is simple but some of the stitch methods were a little difficult to follow. Well worth buying.
