Editorial Reviews

Barbara Jacobs
If normal embroidery thread and needles are difficult to maneuver, ribbon work might appeal. Hiney and Anckner combine talents and techniques to create 26 completely different projects, one for each letter of the alphabet. A few of the designs do stretch to match letters with specific plants and/or flowers, and a few finished pieces might seem a bit too crowded and cluttered. Nonetheless, this is a do-it-yourself introduction to a simple craft.
