About the Author

Tatiana Popova is a Ukrainian embroiderer who specialises in silk ribbon work. Tatiana learnt to stitch at an early age, inspired by her mother and grandmother's embroidery, and for a time she pursued her passion for stitching by studying a huge variety of embroidery styles and techniques, both at school and in her own time. Tatiana studied Floristry Design at university, but soon after graduating she discovered the world of silk ribbon embroidery. She started her own business, Little Owl Smart Crafts Company, producing kits for silk ribbon and crewel embroidery. Tatiana participates in a number of craft shows all around the world, including the UK, USA and Japan, and annually teaches at the Bead & Button Show in the USA.


If you are an embroiderer looking for a challenge and want to create some stunningly beautiful works of art using silk ribbon, this is definitely the book for you. Many of these flowers look real, created from ribbons that have been hand coloured and stitched on in a number of innovative ways, including new stitches created by the author. This is one book that really has the "wow" factor in spades.

Another lovely book for the keeper shelf, and my favourite book of 2019 so far.

Just delightful! Of course, I was suspecting the book to be great and interesting, but never thought it would be SUCH a book...!!! The quality of the printing, the amount of information and the style of its presentation, and even the size of the book - all of that amazes me! Thank you very much for this wonder! Keep up the good work!
