Have you wanted to try River Silks Silk Ribbons but didn’t know where to start? This book is excellent for getting you started. It even comes with practice ribbon and canvas! Written by Paul Krynicki of River Silks Ltd., this book specifically concentrates on River Silks Ribbon which will NOT fray, tear or run when you stitch with it because of the unique way that the silk ribbon is woven. You WILL love this ribbon. (Yes! We carry it!)
You’ll start with the basics – beginning and ending your ribbon, long and short satin stitches and then graduate into French Knots and their many combinations which will make beautiful flowers. Colonial knots with different methods are covered as are the ribbon stitch, side ribbon stitch, rya stitch, buttonhole stitch, leaf stitch, lazy daisy, fly stitch, grab stitch, spider rose, Algerian eye and crosses and more. The rose you see here is on page 31 and is made with ribbon stitch and french knots.

Please be aware that there are NOT stitch graphs for silk ribbon or for the stitches that they suggest in this book – as needlepointers we are so very used to graphs that I that I should point this out.
