Ribbon embroidery kits by Little Owl SmartCrafts TM have instructions in both Russian and English. They are sold worldwide and work as a correspondence ribbon embroidery school :)
No special education is needed: all the stitches used are beautifully described and explained in Appendix to each Instructions.
And all the necessary material, of course! Natural silk ribbon is Number One!
It is fixed to a special organizer, showing which of it should be used for stitching this or that element of the design.
There is plenty of silk ribbon included to every kit: far more than was needed to stitch the original design.
Most of the kits include a printed panel ready to embroider. It makes the stitching process far easier.
Still some of the kits have fabric + a template for the design printed on sheets of paper. It should be transferred on to the fabric. This is not a specially arranged handycap, of course. Some of the designs need a pattern rather than a printed panel, for all the printed flowers and leaves would not be covered with stitches. You have probably noticed that silk ribbon is shaping her stitches a little bit differently every time. If there is a risk of printed stitchess beeing seen through the finished embroidery, a template is included to the kit instead of a printed panel.
All the needles are of highest quality, placed on a special organizer to indicate ribbon size that fits this or that needle.
Kits for ribbon embroidery by Little Owl SmartCrafts TM may also include some thread, beads, seed beads and other material needed.
All the information about a kit is given on the corresponding page of our web site.
Happy stitching and...
