Japanese Ribbon Stitch: The Video

Ruth Schmuff did a little video on how to do Japanese ribbon stitch for one of her mystery classes and shared it with all of us.  It's very easy to do, but hard to explain, so this is a very helpful video.  Note that Ruth uses the Japanese ribbon stitch to lock the wide 7mm ribbon into the needle and also uses it to create foliage on her canvas.

I suspect she is using River Silks silk ribbons as it comes in 4mm, 7mm and 13mm widths and is exceptionally strong.  It won't fray as you stitch with it and comes in a huge range of colors. I highly recommend River Silks ribbons.
