Silk Ribbon embroidery resources online:

I had an email asking about resources online suitable for beginners to Silk Ribbon Embroidery or SRE. As a result I have a bit of a round up of Silk Ribbon embroidery resources online.

Firstly there is an article Beginners’ Silk-Ribbon Embroidery provided by Threads magazine which has links to how to do the stitches. Next stop would be which houses articles, links and blog which unfortunately has not been updated since 2003 so I guess its not current. There is also information about the Silk Ribbon Embroidery Mailing List which can be found at If you are looking for projects, tips and tricks and tutorials have a browse around Ribbonsmyth. This site also houses a stich guide and a gallery.

For inspiration and ideas for traditional Victoriana styled silk ribbon embroidery see Helen R. Gibb. For a contemporary designer in this style and the inventor of the ‘Alton Loop’ see Marie Alton and have a look at the samples of silk ribbon embroidery by Martina Weber on Finally don’t miss Rissa’s site Pretty Impressive Stuff as there is a section devoted to silk ribbon embroidery with heaps of resources listed there.
