Hi! My name is Di van Niekerk, the artist and designer behind Dicraft Embroidery. I am also a professional fibre arts instructor and author and have specialised in dimensional embroidery, ribbon embroidery and stumpwork. I love how these forms bring art to life.
The Dicraft team carefully prepares and exports popular products, lessons and books for anyone wanting to learn how to do all kinds of creative embroidery like silk ribbon embroidery and stumpwork, needle painting and thread work. We create specially prepared needlecraft kits and panels and a lovely range of hand-painted silk and organza ribbons for embroiderers, studios and shops all over the world.
Here I share inspirational stories and free lessons in the form of tutorials and guides. I also share needlework tips, tricks and I teach stitches and techniques that you may find helpful. It is a great resource for any creative wanting to learn or find inspiration for their embroidery. See the Blog tab at the top of this page. Below are a few of my latest blog posts. Enjoy!
