Japanese Motifs in Stumpwork & Goldwork

A treasure trove of ideas and inspiration for embroiderers and lovers of Japanese culture alike.



Jane Nicholas is one of the world's leading embroiderers, specializing in stumpwork. Her exquisite embroideries in goldwork and stumpwork are inspired by Japanese family crests, a subject that has fascinated her for many years.

In this book, Jane has selected 12 designs and interpreted them in a variety of ways using combinations of goldwork, and raised and surface stitching.

The projects feature a charming array of motifs including butterflies and other insects, Japanese plants and flowers.

Measuring just 10cm (4in) square, each is worked on an assortment of silk Japanese kimono fabrics, and is accompanied by detailed instructions, a stitch diagram and the outline for the design.
