Stumpwork Masterclass is a 208 page soft cover publication showcasing Stumpwork embroidery that started out as a two year face to face Masterclass for The Embroiderers Guild, Victoria (Australia).
This book is as much for beginners to Stumpwork embroidery as it is for experienced stitchers as it contains information on all aspects of this beautiful form of embroidery – combining techniques that I teach in my beginners and intermediate classes as well as the masterclass.
While the main focus of Stumpwork Masterclass is techniques found on historical pieces of Stumpwork, it also encompasses modern techniques. This book takes Stumpwork apart and looks at its history and each element that makes it up – from motifs such as flowers and animals to stitches and needle-lace.
Postage – the book is quite heavy – it weighs nearly 1kg – so the postage is as below:
$15.00 postage per book within Australia
$25.00 postage per book airmail New Zealand
$35.00 postage per book airmail USA/Canada
$37.00 postage per book UK/France/Germany/Italy
$47.00 postage per book airmail Rest of World
The above prices are charged at cost of postage and packaging and do not include tracking. If you would like tracking, please advise, as it is approximately $10.00 more expensive. Overseas purchasers don’t pay the Australian tax which brings the cost of the book down to $45.41.
