This time our main news is:
Business-seminar on silk ribbon embroidery

 

In 2015 Little Owl SmartCrafts TM offers quite a new product, that is a business seminar on ribbon embroidery for those who would like to do business in this field of craft. The version for correspondence education is almost ready. Welcome to contact us via email (all_popov@bigmir.net) to study it.

The seminar is taught by Tatiana Popova, ribbon embroidery designer, teacher and auther.

 

Basing on her own experience, Tatiana will give you the full information on the following subjects:
- where to wholesale natural silk ribbon (silk ribbon suppliers from Japan and China)
- how to develope your web site (some tips from her own experience. They turned out to work perfectly well!)
- rules and some important things to develope your own ribbon embroidery kit collection. The more I work on my own one, the more I know how to improve my kits and make the process of their development easier and even more plesant. I will give you some ideas that work.
- You will be able to ask questions if necessary.

Follow the link for more details.
