It's Stumpwork Month!
We think stumpwork deserves a place in the spotlight, so September is Stumpwork month on the &Stitches blog!
Stumpwork is an overall term for techniques that give height to your embroidery work. Either by using textural or raised stitches, beads or even stuffing. It's often used to depict the same pretty motifs: flowers, leaves and cute animals. However, we are convinced stumpwork can be used in lots of creative ways and for contemporary themes too. We hope to inspire you this month, to pick up your needle, thread (and other supplies) to bring your embroidery work to new heights!
Have you ever tried stumpwork? Please share in the &Stitches Flickr group. We'd love to see it!
