Newsletter #6 (January 2016)
Hello stitching world!
Little Owl SmartCrafts TM heartly greets you and wishes the coming year to be full of creativity, joy, health and happiness.
...And with some flowers, of course. It is winter time in my country and snowflaces are dancing nicely in the air. Still we do have some blossom in my studio :) And we have quite a lot of news to tell you. But first things first.
Our very main piece of news is that
my second book on silk ribbon embroidery is soon to be published.
It is coming in two languages, Russian and English: no more handicaps for our communication!
Quite a lot of interesting, new and unusual things will be placed to it. Flower portraits, new stitching techniques, holiday gift ideas. And a lot more! Please find the details at The Seasons in Ribbon Embroidery book page.
It is going to come out in 2016 and currently we accept pre-ordering to firstname.lastname@example.org
One more important thing:
The Third Lucky Ribbon embroidery contest
is going to take place in April 2016. Welcome to take part in it. The selection of ribbon designs participating the contest is shown here. Find your favourite kit and go ahead! Good luck to everybody!
You can find Terms of Participation at the Contest web page.
Moreover, our contest is going to be held twice a year, mid spring and mid autumn.
At present we have started admitting the contest projects. Welcome to send images of your stitched artworks to our email: email@example.com
Embroidery. Framing. Interior
This is the name of a new saloon which organized by Masters` Golden Hands Show managers. It is going to start at the show on 15-17 April 2016. Welcome to see their FB page. The embroidery section seems to keep growing within the show.

My both sons together with my husband are all for it. They are fond of stimpunk craft very much! This time I have even received a stimpunk owl bag for a birthday present :)
The newest project in the field of ribbonwork. Just about how to develop your own business in this field of arts and crafts. Some advice on the subject plus the "secret" information regarding silk ribbon manufacturers.
