My lovely new book about learning stumpwork, a technique of raised embroidery dating back to the 15th century –http://www.kaydennis.co.uk/Beginners.html

I can’t wait to try out the intriguing “spider’s web stitch”.

Here’s a free online stumpwork project from Kay Dennis – http://www.embroiderersguild.org.uk/stitch/projects/summer/index.html
