Welcome to the Ann Cox Silk Ribbon Website...
Beginnerís Guide to Silk Ribbon Embroidery ÖÖ Search Press CLASSICS
This book, now reprinted, is Annís highly informative and amazingly successful first book. She introduces this delightful and delicate form of embroidery in such a way that it is both suitable for the beginner and those with more experience. Learn the foundation techniques to embroider and create a wide range of exquisite flowers using remarkably few stitches. There are also instructions how to paint backgrounds to add depth to the finished embroidery.
Due to the success worldwide of Ann's first two books and much to her delight, Search Press have published The Handbook of Silk Ribbon Embroidery. This is a compilation of A Beginner's Guide to Silk Ribbon Embroidery and Silk Ribbon Embroidery Designs & Techniques. Now both discontinued.
Ann is an established silk ribbon embroidery designer, author and teacher. She is an experienced City and Guilds Further Education Tutor, who has taught many practical crafts over the years. A keen gardener with a love of flowers, it is her attention to detail that captivates all those that see her work. She describes herself as, ' very fortunate, being able to combine all the things I have ever enjoyed doing, creating new techniques and passing these skills onto others'.
Working with Search Press, her publisher, Ann's books are available worldwide, printed in numerous languages and used by colleges, schools and guilds and libraries as reference books. Using a remarkably small number of stitches the books are practical guides, beautifully illustrated with clear step by step photographs and instructions, stitch guides and templates.
