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. Encompassing contemporary candlewicking fitting for today’s home decor, 31 original patterns complete with color diagrams and step-by-step photographs are worked into 29 projects. Greet guests in the entryway with a welcoming coat rack; gather the family around the kitchen table with a warm, hearty meal with placemats and napkins; retreat to where the outdoors come in with dragonfly pillows, butterfly trays, and flower frames.
