Through her unconventional experimentation with ribbon, author and designer Denise Giles has formulated an enchanting combination - the texture of traditional candlewicking with the classic beauty of silk ribbon. Replace the heavy cotton threads with delicate flosses, silken or metallic threads, and pearl cotton; substitute the white cotton fabric within linen, woven, muslin, or even color fabrics; add beautiful ribbon embroidery accents, and needle artists are left with this fresh new twist to an age-old needlework hobby.
