In ‘Wishing you Happiness’, Tatiana shares her love of beautiful flowers in ribbon embroidery. In this class, you’ll learn several new ribbon embroidery stitches in addition to some basic stitches. What an extraordinary way to learn silk ribbon embroidery and enhance your skills. This beautiful rose bouquet will never fade!
More about Tatiana Popova:
She learnt to stitch at an early age, inspired by her mother and grandmother’s embroidery, and for a time pursued her passion for stitching by studying a huge variety of embroidery styles and techniques, both at school and in her own time. Despite her love for embroidery, Tatiana studied to become a florist designer initially. However, soon after graduating from university, she discovered the world of silk ribbon embroidery. It triggered the beginnings of her own own business, Little Owl Smart Crafts Company, producing kits for silk ribbon and crewel embroidery – thus allowing her to create flower bouquets that never fade. Today, Tatiana participates in a number of craft shows all around the world, including the UK, US and Japan, and annually teaches at the Bead&Button Show. You can find out more about Tatiana and her work via her website, www.owl-crafts.com.
