The book is aiming the two categories of embroidery lowers: firstly it is cerating for beginners, of course. Books are an easy way to get some correspondence education on this or that subject. Therefore authors of books on crafts should always take it into consideration, I am sure.

On the other hand The Seasons in Ribbon Embroidery book will include 7 projects for intermediate scill level and 3 designs for advanced experts, offering plenty of ideas and inspiration to professional emroiderers.

We all are different, and this is a priceless treasure and I am eager to share it with all craft lovers :)))
