We travel to South Africa this week to learn about ribbon embroidery from Di van Niekerk, one of the world’s leading experts. This week’s show is sponsored by Sassy Jacks Stitchery.
Di van Niekerk takes ribbon-embroidery art to a new level. Her ability to add dimension and realism to painted scenes is flat out amazing. She has authored 14 books on needle-art techniques, in addition to her “Box Full of Lessons” series, has created her own line of silk ribbons specifically dyed to deliver natural colors that are needed in ribbon embroidery, and travels internationally to teach and lecture. For variety, she also does stumpwork and needle painting.
Enjoy the show and be sure to visit her website, dicraft.com, to enjoy her many offerings.–Gary
