Di van Niekerk's hand painted ribbons have revolutionised the art of silk ribbon embroidery. Softly shaded, often with a few colours painted into the ribbon, they enable embroiderers to create flowers with astounding similarity to the real thing. Author of many books, Di's latest book, Roses is her best one yet. It gives you a ribbon rose sampler that comprises many varieties of the flower, each more realistic than the last.
