Amazon.com 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.

Format: Paperback
This book is unique in that it takes you step by step through not only finished embroidery designs, but also from the very beginning with instructions on how to dye the ribbon yourself (which saves quite a bit of money in the end).
It is clear, concise and easy to understand. This book is staple in my crafting library and I continue to reference it time and time again.

I was looking for information on dyeing silk ribbon and this book has a chapter w/ a number of different techniques. It also has a good chapter on making fauna (dragonfly, bee, butterfly, etc.). It is by far not the best book for basic stitches, for that I'd take The Handbook of Silk Ribbon Embroidery(Cox) and Silk Ribbon Embroidery Bible (Gordon), two books I use almost daily.
