Following the popular Stumpwork Dragonflies and Stumpwork Beetles, Stumpwork Butterflies & Moths is the third in a series of stitched insect collections. Jane Nicholas has created a "specimen box" of jewels with 18 Lepidoptera, all chosen for interest, color, and to showcase an assortment of materials and techniques. There's everything from surface embroidery in lustrous silks for the Indian Moon Moth to stitched clear plastic for the Glasswing Butterfly.
Jane Nicholas has been researching and working in the field of embroidery for over 20 years. Specializing in stumpwork and goldwork embroidery, she has now written eight books and contributed widely to journals and magazines. In 1999 Jane was awarded a Churchill Fellowship to further her studies in stumpwork and in 2005 she received the Order of Australia Medal (OAM), for her "services to hand embroidery as an artist, teacher, and author." She teaches widely for embroiderers' guilds and businesses in Australia, New Zealand, and the US.
