    This review is for Ribbon Embroidery and Stumpwork 2016 edition. Wonderful book by a wonderful artist. Van Niekirk is very thorough on the steps & supplies needed for completing the ribbon embroidery design on the cover. There is a full color reproduction of the base picture which you have permission to scan & print onto fabric yourself or take it to a copy shop and have them do the printing. The steps for each flower are explained fully & completely. She tells you exactly what ribbons & flosses she uses in the examples if you want to duplicate her work closely. Of course you can always improvise with whatever is available locally. You can even order the supplies as a kit from her website, tho the full kit is a bit pricey for me. I'm going the improv route and using what I have. In any case, the photography is great and just browsing all the ribbonwork is very inspiring. This is a talented lady that has put out some beautiful work.

    I wish that the pictures were bigger to see the details. As a visual person I miss it. Good to get information by reading, not by the many small pictures, unfortunately.
