Sometimes I am caught up and frayed around the edges and I can’t see the forest through the trees. For the past year this has been the most hit page on my blog and I don’t keep it as up to date as my home page. Now how silly is that? Ever since I invented my silk shibori ribbon I have tagged this blog and my various other pages and sites with those three simple words. I recently uploaded a simple (and currently unfinished) website directing people here to my blog and to my other online profiles- Facebook and Instagram. I am in a constant state of changing and things are never up to date in all of my profiles at the same time- so I hope you’ll take a minute and poke around a bit even if you are here just for the ribbon! Leave me a comment, it’s always a pleasure!

    Hi there! I’m writing another book combining machine needle and wet felting and I’m using pleated shibori for some of the (yummy) flowers! Can I use you as a resource?

    Do you have any more bags of scraps of short lengths I can purchase? I especially need any Iris tones (violet, purple, etc. and Poppy tones – reds, pinks, oranges). These are FABULOUS with lots of texture – it’s taken me ages to perfect this technique.

    Hi! Do you have any stockists in the UK? Your ribbon is truly wonderful and if you don’t have a distributor in the UK, we need to talk

    Best wishes

    nice! I may have ties in the future- in the meantime, it’s pretty easy to find a tie to compliment the pocket squares- see the photo on my etsy site!

    I came across your shibori flower technique, it looks fantastic. I was hoping to incorporate it into my major work, just wondering if there are suppliers in Australia…Or would it be easier to purchase it through your online store.
    Thanks, Marissa

    These ribbons are really fabulous. I would like to enquire if I could get them in India or is there any way of procuring these in Mumbai, India.

    I love your Shibori ribbon. I live in Florida and wondered if you teach classes anywhere near here. It would be almost impossible for me to get to California. Any help you could give would be appreciated. You can email me directly with any information. Thank you.

    Your ribbons are glorious!! you should try not to be too hard on yourself!! I have found it almost impossible to keep all outlets current at the same time. my blog is woefully neglected as I have been more concerned about my two Face Book ages. That seems to be where alot of the action is and I do worry about my blog. Sigh – we do the best we can and you do amazing work!! now I am off to shop for ribbon!!!

    Would like to purchase some small pieces of soft pinks,greens, blues and tan colours if possible or just scraps to make earring etc. I have chronic pain and want to do something to help me cope by making things with this beautiful silk. I live in Australia and would like to order from here or wherever thankyou

    It’s a lovely one. I can’t ever seen such a mind-blowing ribbon in my life. I want this. If I place order to India today means how many days it will take to reach India. I can’t take my eyes out of the shibori ribbon.
