NEW! This beautiful and practical DVD by Di van Niekerk titled "One-on-one workshops in Ribbon Embroidery and Stumpwork" is a definite must have for all embroiderers. Di teaches this popular hobby on a beautiful flower sampler with 13 panels. The first four panels on the design are taught in precise detail in Volume 1. Di will teach the remaining nine panels in volume 2 and 3 and these will be released quarterly in 2007. This way you will be able to attend a class at the press of a button and rewind or pause as you stitch. An ideal way to learn as stitches are magnified four times the actual size. 45 stitches are shown, step-by-step, including 17 different flowers and creatures and 10 stumpwork techniques. Enjoy the detailed, close-up photography with loads of hints and tips along the way. This DVD is equivalent to 12 individual master classes. With over 20 years of teaching experience, you now have access to Di's workshops at your fingertips!

The ONLY thing I will warn about is that I feel Amazon does a disservice by not explaining in their description that the pattern on the cover of the DVD and which Di refers to in the DVD is NOT included when you buy it from Amazon. However, this is very easily remedied as Di will send you the pattern free by e-mail. Or do like I did and buy the panel itself directly from her. If you aren't in South Africa don't let the distance scare you. The pattern is gorgeously done (hand painted) and very inexpensive at only R149 which is $14.15 in US Dollars. To save you some time looking for it (her website is jam packed with goodies) go to the search bar and put "RES Panel" and you'll find it on page 15 of 35 pages of panels. Postage isn't high and it's quick too.
The other thing you can do is buy the book here at Amazon. It has the pattern in both color and b/w that you can copy and print directly onto your own fabric or trace. The book explains in detail how to go about it, and how to do all the stitches as well.
Di and Renn (her sister-in-law) are both VERY helpful and answers all questions so thoroughly I don't know how they have time to run a business.
The product comes with two DVDs, oddly they each are numbered as volumn 1. Nevertheless, each disc is different. One is a demo of the stitches in forming the actual work, and the other are demos of each single stitch used in the demos. You will easily learn this craft as Ms Niekerk, is an excellent instructor. You will enjoy embellishing work of your own, with flowers that look real, and beautiful. She demos roses, and other flowers, birds, bees etc. You will be very pleased with how easy it is to learn and do this craft. She has free downloads on her web site.She also has a beginners kit available. There was no problem with delivery. I would recommend using notice by mobile phone to alert that delivery is on the way or completed. There was no problem with delivery, I received the product a few days earlier than stated on the order.
The brief descriptions of these products you see here don't do justice to these products, and I urge you to go to YouTube where you'll find excerpts from these DVDs available for viewing. It was there, viewing the "Iris stitch" clip, specifically, that my eyes were opened to the quality of the images and the instruction on these DVDs which sent me in search of them and ultimately brought me to Amazon. Don't take my word for it! Go and see for yourself, and be similarly dazzled.
Here's a link directly to the "Iris stitch," (from the second DVD in the collection) but there are others as well. Do a search for Di Van Niekirk to see the entire wondrous array.
The DVD is beautiful to listen to and has lovely gentle music in the background.
I was very disappointed to find it didn't come with the traceable pattern sheet & the list of requirements although it clearly states on the cover that these are included.
