Hello, stitching world. I have something really gorgeous to share with you today by the much-respected ribbon embroiderer, Olga Smirnova from St. Petersburg. I had the great pleasure of spending time with Olga when I visited her beautiful city and we got on so well, it felt like I had known her all my life.

Olga is an incredibly talented embroiderer and two of her masterpieces are featured in the beautiful book: Silk Ribbon Embroidery — A collaboration of artists from around the world that was published to showcase the winners of the International Silk Ribbon Embroidery Competition 2012. 

 

And Olga has kindly shared this exquisite masterpiece with us.

  1. Oh my goodness! I can smell the flowers and hear the bees from here. Absolutely stunning Olga – thank you so much for sharing. I could never even hope to aspire to such exquisite work but I am so grateful for the inspiration Olga gives. Best wishes and kind thoughts from cold, wet North Somerset in the UK. Marion
