  1. I am right at the begining of my new experience of silk ribbon embroidery and find your web site both encouraging and amazing and very informative. I love to get lost looking at all your fantastic achievements, they are truly beautiful. Thank you

  2. Absolutely beautifyl work! I’ve been looking around the web for ideas of things to do with the ribbons from my sister’s funeral flowers. She died way to young…only 57. I have all the ribbons from the flowers and hope to make something from them. Any advice? tks.

  3. Your are truly an inspiring person! I can’t wait to begin silk ribbon embroidery. Just by chance the other day, I was able to purchase your Embroidered Alphabets book and I am so excited to try this method of embroidery. I told several colleagues about this style and they can’t wait to start their own projects. You have motivated us to explore and use our imaginations.
