Ruby Ribbons eBook Now Available

ruby ribbons, needlepoint stitch sampler designed by janet m perry and stitched by cyberpointers in honor of ANG's 40th anniversary

Over 250 needlepoint stitches in this delightful project book & stitch dictionary

A couple of years ago the CyberPointers Chapter of ANG decided we were going to create a project in honor of ANG’s 40th Anniversary. An open competition was held for designs and my design, “Ruby Ribbons,” won.

That’s it pictured here. It’s based on a 1930’s quilt block and features two red ribbons curling around a background that moves from white in the center to black at the edges.

The design consists of four panels with 64 blocks in each. Every block has a different stitch, for over 250 needlepoint stitches. They use all kinds of different techniques, stitches and threads.

It was auctioned off at the ANG Seminar last month.

CyberPointers has created an ebook of the stitches used in the project that has close-up pictures of each block, information about the threads used to stitch it and a diagram of the stitch. It’s a grand and affordable stitch dictionary.

The book is available for $15 as a PDF or $20 for the PDF on CD and is a fund-raiser for the chapter. You can order it on this page.

There is so much wonderful information here, it should be in your stitching library.

    Wow! I just received my copy. What a fantastic piece and what a terrific book. I do have a couple of questions though. What size is each finished panel? And, is there a master list of the threads used? Now I’m off to study the book more.

    Outstanding work!

  2. says

    Each of the blocks is 24 threads square, so each panel is about 11″ square. There is no master list of threads because people used what was in their stashes and many threads were unidentified. When known the threads are listed for each block.

    Glad you like it!

    Keep Stitching,
