next ribbon show

I will be taking my ribbons on the road again in June, to the Original Creative Festival in Cincinnati. I thought it would be a good way to build on the positive response to the ribbons in Paducah.

Show dates are June 25-27 at the Sharonville Convention Center, 11355 Chester Road, Sharonville OH. Come visit if you are in the area!

I wish I could make these things

I was just scrolling through my files of "things to make with ribbon" and I found these images which have always inspired me. These are some of the best things I could ever dream of making -- but as you can see, somewhat time intensive. All of these images are courtesy of the Victoria & Albert's amazing website.

What a lovely photo, no? I received this yesterday from Renaissance Ribbons -- it is part of a new promotion for LFN Textiles ribbons, and the photographer, Keith Walley, has added such magic to the ribbons!

new ribbon ideas

It has been my intention for some time to show some of the things that my customers make with the ribbons I design. Yesterday a fellow etsy seller contacted me telling me she had made this wonderful sash with them. Wow! what a great display of plumage! Her shop name is EachDayIsRemarkable.

She has a second shop, Goodblossoms, selling wonderful fabric flowers, and had contacted me earlier regarding a fun flower using the red suzani ribbon as a center. She still has this charming bloom made with the lavender Auricula ribbon as a center.
