Suzanis at Last!!



Today my box full of Suzani ribbons arrived from Renaissance Ribbons. How exciting it is! I submitted the designs on Easter Sunday, fighting a cold while I made all the thread color choices, and here they are in my hands at last. They are flying out the door, I am told, and we are considering a fifth color way in more muted tones if all goes well with these.

In the next few days I will be making things with these and will upload pictures as I go: meanwhile you can see them at Renaissance Ribbons.

I am also showing you here the first Suzani which inspired the collection, a beautiful Bukhara I saw at my favorite bazaar, eBay.

  1. How beautiful! If you visit my blog, you'll see that I've been thinking about Suzanis lately. Wish I had had your ribbon to embellish my quilt. Perhaps I can finess it into the binding, which is still to come . . .

  2. Wow! These are fantastic, Laura! Do you know which vendors have stocked these ribbons from Renaissance Ribbons, since I'd really like to buy smaller lengths?
