About the book
Author of 10 embroidery books, Di van Niekerk is a world renowned silk ribbon and fibre artist. Every year or two she holds an International Silk Ribbon Embroidery competition. In doing so, selected designs are chosen from her range of panels which are available from her stockists worldwide and from her website. Embroiderers are invited to stitch them using her range of hand painted silk and organza ribbons, employing their own ideas and techniques using any choice of thread, wool, fibre (or anything else) to add to their creation.
This book features the exquisite pieces by the winners of the 2012 competition.
Showcasing the work of silk ribbon artists from all over the world, it is an international collaboration of exquisite talent and skill.
Intended to inspire, rather than instruct, this is a book to dip into for ideas. One that will take you forward and show you that just about anything is possible.
It is a valuable addition to the silk ribbon embroiderer’s library.
