The book starts with a very comprehensive section explaining all about the history of stumpwork, and then moving on to materials to use, plus various techniques such as padding shapes and using wire. The stitches you need are covered in detail, including needlelace stitches. The section on how to set up a floor frame to stitch stumpwork on is really detailed, with loads of pictures to show exactly how to do it. Each has a modern look, although elements from the past are used too. At the end of each project, there are several pages of related items shown in gallery format — for instance, after the brooch project there are examples of other wearable stumpwork, such as a fascinator and a beaded cuff. Pros: I really liked this book. The early sections on materials, frames, transferring designs, etc.
