Stumpwork Embroidery

I have just finished my next stumpwork embroidery sample for upcoming workshop. Thanks goes to Wendy Honeyman in Louth for enabling me to teach at her fab new studio where I started this piece to show her students how it was achieved.

For those not in the know stumpwork consists of many raised techniques applied to surface and padded embroidery. This piece demonstrates free standing embroidered and wired leaves and petals with raised leaf stitch and laced chain stitch. I hope the girls in Louth have enjoyed finishing their project.

Lastly check out Wendy’s studio in Louth. She has got some great classes coming up
