I have way too many copies of some of the wonderful out-of-print and rare Needlepoint books I stock. I have added 7 more titles to them, 4 of them Bargello books, and significantly lowered the price of all of the others.

Helen Gibb is the author of the well-known book, RibbonWork, The Complete Guide. She has recently released a DVD showing you how to begin to stitch using Ribbons.
Many people have expressed interest in learning this newly very popular stitching medium. This DVD is exactly what I had hoped someone would do.
A quote from Carol Duvall on the cover of the DVD says "Watching this DVD is like having private lessons with Helen, Fabulous".
" Now you can have permanent access to all Helen's ribbon ideas and techniques "
From another review ":This is no whimpy one topic, one technique short DVD. You get so much more for your money - and it's money well spent because you get to see Helen actually showing you the techniques that she uses to make her beautiful ribbon flowers - close up! After you've seen all the demonstrations and lessons you'll be really motivated to get out your ribbons and start making ribbon flowers! And what exactly is on this DVD - well . . . .everything! The lessons include - u-gathers, tubes, petals, folding ribbon, and leaves. There are lots of close up, over Helen's shoulder views showing how to do folded roses, vintage flat roses, cabochon roses, coil roses, tea roses, rosettes and all their variations, pansies, poppies, carnations, bachelor buttons, berries, bell flowers, and 5 leaves. There are also three design segments. "
I can't watch the DVD to review it for you without opening it but I can tell you that Helen Gibb's books are very well down, informative and easy to follow. I expect the same (or more) from this DVD.
Region code 0, it will play on all DVD players. !20 minutes, in color & in English. The bonus features include a Ribbon Guide, a Gallery & Resources.
