For whom is this course?
Silk ribbon embroidery can be used as a stand-alone technique, but also offers many additional possibilities for broderie d’art. I wholeheartedly recommend this course to anyone engaged in couture. This is also a valuable addition to the well-known techniques for quilters.
No prior education is required for this course. Anyone with some experience with needle and thread can follow this course. The course is a nice give away. An ideal project during a vacation.
