>What is stumpwork?
It is raised embroidery or padded embroidery depending of what you
read. It also uses a small wire to help in forming the figures and
pushing out the pieces of embroidery. They are a lot of examples in
books on Stumpwork showing caskets from the 1400s and 1600s. If you
interested look at:
Stumpwork: The Art of Raised Embroidery by Muriel L. Baker
Stumpwork: Historical and Contemporary Raised Embroidery by Muriel
Both are out of print but your local library should be able to find a
copy for you thru inter-library loan.
