Embrace the twists and turns of ribbon for exquisite results! Get started as expert embroiderer Mary Jo Hiney shows you how to prevent sinking stitches and keep ribbon dimensional, then walks you through several variations of the versatile straight stitch. Next, learn to keep ribbon flat and wide as you embroider a gorgeous garden of lazy daisy stitches. Master loopy stitches for lovely, textural effects, and bring radiant rosettes to life in a variety of sizes. Then, use your new skills to construct a velvet-covered box and frame, complete with ribbonwork, embroidery and beautiful beading.
