Reviews - What do our customers think?
Better than I thought  Aug 21, 2008
Many of the previous reviews complained that you needed to buy the kit from South Africa, in order to perform the work. Or that there wasn't enough detail and how to.
I have never done this kind of work before and I found it easy as pie! And fun!
The biggest point that might need to be stressed are that the image, which you transfer on to your cloth, needs a transfer. Simply buy transfer sheets (like you would for a T-shirt), then use the "mirror" image on your copy machine; poof! It's ready to go on your cloth and when you iron it on, the words will be facing the right direction instead of accidently inverted.
But talk about opening up a wide, wide world of three dimensional work 3-D. We always think people from the previous centuries just weren't as smart as us, but they were AMAZING to come up with something that is so much fun!
Try it once and enjoy it for years!
After spending time in Cape Town, and visiting the Crafters' Market at the V&A Waterfront, where this talented artist has a storefront, I could not believe the absolutely beautiful pieces of "art work", that one could create using ribbon embroidery and stumpwork! Upon my arrival back home, I obtained a copy of this wonderful book, and began my "adventure" into the world of ribbon embroidery! As a beginnner embroiderer, I was doubtful of my ability to produce such "masterpieces", but after sitting down with Ms. Van Niekerk's book, my worries were cast aside! Not only has this talented artist provided a wonderful pictorial "Stitch Glossary" for the crafter, but she has also given the reader very clear and exact instructions to create these beautiful stitches!!
After reading some of the reviews left by other readers, I have to admit to being "puzzled" by the review left by "Anonymous". Apparently this reader did not go further than the "Stitch Gossary", and must have missed the explanations of "how-to" create the stitches, because I had absolutely no problem following the written instructions provided by Ms. Van Niekerk for the completion of the various stitches.
In conclusion, RUN, DON'T WALK, to purchase your own copy of "Ribbon Embroidery and Stumpwork"! You will not be disappointed, and you will be creating your own visual masterpiece!!
If I could have only one book.  Nov 15, 2007
If I could have only one book in my library on embroidery, this would be it.
don't waste your money  Apr 3, 2007
I am a beginner at stumpwork and fancy stitches but not at ribbon embroidery or ribbon flowers. I wanted a book with more than just ribbon embroidery so I bought this one. To my disappointment, the instructions consist of pictures of different stitches with no explanations. And then later in the book some basic instructions on how to do those stitches in little projects. So ok, I'm supposed to look at the pictures in the beginning of the book and figure out how to do those stitches without any written instructions (some are very easy, but several of the hard ones left me stumped and very frustrated.) And if I only have pictures to work with then how about enough pictures so I can see which step comes first! How about some lessons in technique! So then after the stitches part now you do the projects except well those are hard to figure out too because of the bare minimum instructions given or none at all. Like where it says: Covering a bead with thread. Yep that's it just look at the picture and figure it out. Ok so what's the technique? Do I wrap the string around and around through the hole until the bead is completely covered? Or through the hole and then diagonal? And how is it finished off when you've covered the bead? And how is it attached to your project? What is the best technique? Well I still don't know because there are no instructions. That's just a small example of how annoying this book is. So if I want to do a lot of the things in this book then I'll need to buy another book to explain how to figure out this book. So It's not for beginners because it's too confusing but I know it's also not for experts because this stuff is too basic. Yes well needless to say this book is going back to where it came from. I need an aspirin for this seventeen dollar headache...
Instructions were very easy to follow   Jan 11, 2007
In addition to beautiful color illustrations, the instructions were comprehensive and easy to follow.
