In Keith Smith's Exposed Spine Sewings book, Part 1 is devoted to diagramming various kettle and link stitches. It also introduces how to use the sewing frame, how to round, to pack, and dying of cords and thread. Part 2 is variations on raised support sewings, described by text,diagrams and photographs. Some employ the kettle stitch as changeover. Other means of changeover are explored, including packing, and endbands as changeover. Part 3 demonstrates simple to very elaborate sewings, across, rather than along the spine. These require no equipment or sewing frame, only a needle, thread and scissors.
