Kim Sanders and Sheryl Borden discuss Stumpwork embroidery on Creative Living

On this clip from Creative Living with Sheryl Borden(KENW), designer Kim Sanders talks about the raised and padded embroidery technique called stumpwork.  Stumpwork is a marvelously versatile technique since whichever thread, fabric or found object that best suits the designer’s vision, can be incorporated into a stumpwork embroidery. Samples of motifs using different kinds of padding and wire show a number of ways embroidery can become three dimensional.
