Feather Fringe and Ribbon Goodies

 These naturally patterned feathers on a fringe are commonly used to trim hats & fascinators.  Use individual feathers for earrings, other jewellery pieces and creative journal covers. These are natural and have not been dyed.

 Find gorgeous grosgrain, velvet, pleated organza, embroidered trims and hand dyed silk ribbons on our sale pages.

 Shaded, embroidered sequin trimmed flowers are spaced along the organza ribbon.  They can be cut into little flower motifs or meandered through your crazy patchwork.  Each flower is 11mm. and they are sold in 25cm. lengths.

 Wire Edged Ribbon
These ribbons are brilliant for making flowers especially roses and pansies. Great for wrapping parcels and decorating too.  Limited stock left.

I like to provide the finest creative fabrics, ribbons, trims and treasures I can find because they give you the best results. I hate to struggle with something that won't sit well or fold the way I want and often it's the product. So over the years I've found the things I love and can trust to work well for you.  Good quality, beautiful colours and textures make your creative life easier with great results.  I hope you find your favourites in my collections for your New Year stitching.
