Sophie is having a book launch at the Sunbury Embroidery Gallery on Sat 18th February from 11:00 to 14:00.

Sophie once gave us a special workshop as I organise a stitching group called Kew Stitch Club for Japanese community in my local area. We tried her lovely ribbonwork embroidery heart kit.

I could finish only half of the heart on the workshop day.

Then I tried to finish the other half on my own. It always helps to look at the photos Sophie provides us!

What a delightful design! I love the texture of silk ribbon, and especially variegated ribbon looks so beautiful…

Added the finishing touches with something sparkly. Sophie gave us sufficient spangles, but I used just a few to my liking. I just wanted a subtle sparkle.

You can get Sophie’s new book Ribbonwork Embroidery: Techniques and Projects on Amazon, but also you can get it directly from her through her website. Sophie Long Embroidery

I highly recommend you go to her book launch if you are in the area. You can meet her in person and get a signed copy! The details of the event are as follows:
