A-Z of Ribbon Embroidery

A - Z of Ribbon Embroidery

Country Bumpkin Publications

The sixth book in the Successful A - Z Series

ISBN 0 9579069 3 5

On the cover this book claims to be "one of the great reference books of all time. A superb step-by-step guide to creating more than 40 dazzling designs using ribbon. An essential addition to your library." Strong words and hard to live up to but the A-Z of Ribbon Embroidery not only meets these claims but in my humble opinion far exceeds them.

Beginning with the binding, the book has a heavy laminated cardboard cover that opens to pages that are wire bound allowing the pages to lie flat. It is printed on heavy slick paper so the book is built to last with constant use.

The pictures are fantastic as are the step-by-step illustrations. With this book a supply of ribbon and a little time, a complete novice stitcher can be making beautiful designs in no time at all. The experienced stitcher will refer to the stitches and designs time and time again. As your first book on ribbon embroidery or part of an expanding collection, A-Z of Ribbon Embroidery will be a great asset to your library.
