Valentina Ilkova lives in Russia, in the small town of Nakhodka. She teaches silk ribbon embroidery and wrote to me: “I am happy to watch all the embroidery on your blog, fans of the bands of embroidery from other countries on Facebook. For me it’s like meeting with friends. Ribbon embroidery reduces the distance that brings people together.
Love, Valentina
