Ribbon Embroidery

Postby Miriam » Sun Dec 23, 2007 3:43 pm

I just invested in two very lovely books by a S. Africa lady ..Di van Niewkirk or something or other.

She incorporates ribbon embroidery and stumpwork and the results are amazingly beautiful.

Anyone here do ribbon emb????

I tried it years ago and I think I have a book on it somewhere, but then I got involved with needlelace.
