With one of the biggest building booms of today taking place in the doll house business, many will like the first part, with its needlework for children, their dolls and doll houses. But the book is mostly about needlework for interiors, and that is the chief reason for reprinting it."

"Stumpwork is a style of embroidery where the stitched figures are raised from the surface of the work to form a 3-dimensional effect. Stitches can be worked around pieces of wire to create individual forms such as leaves, insect wings or flower petals. This form is then applied to the main body of work by piercing the background fabric with the wires and securing tightly. Other shapes can be created using padding under the stitches, usually in the form of felt layers sewn one upon the other in increasingly smaller sizes. The felt is then covered with a layer of embroidery stitches." ; Signed by Author

3 Landes, John (with Threading Drafts and Notes by Mary Meigs Atwater) 1 A Book Of Patterns For Hand-weaving (From Drawings in the Pennsylvania Museum)
Hollywood, CA Southern California Handweaver's Guild, Inc. 1977 1st Edition Thus; 1st Printing Paperback Near Fine 
B&W Illustrations; This is an oversized paperback book with cardstock covers and a glued spine. The book is in Near Fine condition and was issued without a dust jacket. The book and its contents are in clean, bright condition. The text pages are clean and bright. Page 25 has been inserted upside-down and with the wrong title - It should be listed as Part II (of IV) , but shows Part IV. - checking the pages, all the text pages are correct and there is no duplication of patterns. " One of the most interesting documents in the all too meagre archives of American hand weaving is a book of drawings by one John Landes, who appears to have been a professional weaver of the Revolutionary period." This remarkable old pattern book is one of the treasures of the Frishmuth Collection in the Pennsylvania Museum, where many of the weaving fraternity have had the privilege of examining it. And it is through the generous permission of the museum that the present publication is made possible."
