To conclude the subject I would rather cite a well-known American bead artist, the words addressed to all craft contest participants:
«Remember, that taking part in contests is not just about to win a prise, but to advertise your art. Contests show your work to thousands, therefore we need them as we need advertisement». (Huib Petersen)

The first International Ribbon embroidery contest, organized by Little Owl SmartCrafts took place in October 2014. Its final part was held within `Masters` Golden Hands` Craft Show in Kiev, Ukraine (Brovarsky Ave, 15).
Visitors and Show participants voted for the projects by finalists to select the three best artworks. The voting took place on October, 17th and 18th.
The contest participants were from three countries, i.e. Ukraine, Russia and USA. The youngest participant was only three years old!
Most of participants showed their very first designs in silk ribbon embroidery, all worked by kits for ribbon embroidery by Little Owl SmartCrafts TM.

The finalists of our ribbon embroidery contest: just have a look to admire their talents!
The youngest participant is a 6-year-old girl, her name is Maria Grigorieva (Moscow region, Russia). She embroidered our design of Cottage House ribbon embroidery kit. Her mother helped her to do it, still she worked on her own.
These artworks are by talented Svetlana Fomichova (the city of Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine). She is fond of different kinds of embroidery, and I must say, every her project is a masterpiece!
