About this title

Synopsis:

An accomplished needle artist presents her newest treasure trove of ribbon embroidery techniques to inspire creative stitchers and quilters, decorative painters, and fiber artists. This sequel to The Complete Guide to Silk Ribbon Embroidery takes the ribbon embroidery enthusiast past basic stitches and techniques to new heights of design and artistry. 200 color illustrations.

Review:

In this volume Victoria Adams Brown moves beyond the realm of The Complete Guide to Silk Ribbon Embroidery to incorporate a number of media to enhance her ribbon embroidery. Brown aims for a broad audience that includes quilters, dollmakers, fabric painters, miniaturists, knitters, and crocheters who seek new ways to embellish their work. She employs rubber stamping, stenciling, watercolors, silk painting, and polymer clay adornments to produce good-looking projects that range from wearables to wall hangings. There are clear, concise, step-by-step directions for stitching various animals and flowers, as well as thorough coverage of techniques such as making your own silk ribbon, ribbon dyeing and painting methods, and even burning ribbon into unusual shapes.
