'Bumblebee' Stumpwork Embroidery Kit


Turkey rug stitch
3-D wired shapes

Fits 5 inch (12cm) hoop

Suitable for beginners

The term ‘stumpwork’ refers to three-dimensional or raised embroidery.  Technically this is a misnomer; the technique is more accurately called ‘raised embroidery’ - historically stumpwork means a very particular technique of using tiny pieces of wood to create the nose on an embroidered person!

Raised embroidery typically has elements of padding, wired 3D shapes and needlelace.

This design fits a 5 " (12 cm) ring frame.  It is ideal for beginners, giving you an introduction to stumpwork - including wired 3D shapes.

In the pack you get full instructions for each stitch, with tips on how to achieve the best results.

Kit contains:  calico fabric, organza fabric, stranded cotton embroidery thread, crewel wool, needles, design and full instructions

The kit comes in a small box which comes in handy for storage while you stitch the project.
