Dreamscapes in Ribbon Embroidery and StumpworkBook - 2006
Four beautiful paintings turned into embroidery masterpieces by Di van Niekerk, one of the country's foremost ribbon and thread artists. The book explains how designs printed on fabric are enhanced by several creative embroidery techniques using ribbon and thread. In addition to a wide variety of surface stitches, both the traditional and modern versions, techniques include trapunto, needlelace, padded shapes, tassel-making, wired and detached shapes, using glitter, new ideas for flowers and grass, making interesting trees, and much more. A stitch glossary featuring more than 60 fully illustrated stitches makes this an excellent reference guide too. The exquisite embroidered designs showcase the author's phenomenal talent and will inspire even the most reluctant needleworker to start stitching.
