Blog > Ribbon Embroidery by Annisa Lam of Dancing Needles in Hong Kong

I have to show you this amazing embroiderer's work - Ribbon Embroidery by Annisa Lam of Dancing Needles in Hong Kong!
 
It's from one of our most popular kits/courses - the Pink Delight step-by-step course. This is a fabulous way to learn how to create a stunning piece in silk ribbon embroidery. You can learn online by following here and you can buy the kit (it's on sale while stocks last) which consists of everything that you will need plus the step-by-step e-book. 
Have a look at Annisa's fabulous creation below! 
 

 
I love the way she made her roses and the rose tree is simply divine. The colours and textures in this piece are awesome! 
Have a look at these close-ups...
Look at her roses below! Oh, wow, they are incredible.
Here she used layers of silk ribbon, carefully layering petal after petal, as found in nature, for a realistic effect. 
 

I love the way she made the top wall and the pink and yellow roses (below) are French Knot Roses. And look at the shrub next to the white one on the path! Lovely colours! It looks like Annisa used loosely formed Pistil stitches and French knots
 

The same scene from a different angle...
 

 
Look at her pale pink and white roses below Loose, puffed ribbon stitch with French knots in the centre. Loop stitch is also an option with a French knot or two in the centre
See how she used picot ribbon to make the orange flowers along the path?
 

 
And this rose tree below is magnificent! Annisa used mainly loop stitch and French knots to create the feathery texture. I also love the rose-tree stem, it's chenille yarn twisted and couched into position, really lovely!

 
I love the way she used our green organza ribbon 6mm number 30 to make the green fence below. She twisted the ribbon to form a twisted straight stitch for each fence pole. Clever!
 

The amazing Annisa Lam! Annisa teaches ribbon embroidery and stumpwork and many other kinds of embroidery (she is an incredibly gifted designer) from her beautiful studio. Please feel free to contact her with any questions about her classes if you are living in Hong Kong or maybe even visiting her beautiful city.  You won't be sorry!

In “The Kwoks & What’s “ 我家無難事 some other ribbon embroidery artwork was featured too… The Rose Book Panel, Red Clover fairy, The Cherry Blossom fairy, Black Swan (Tranquil Waters) and the 17 panels of Ribbon Embroidery & Stumpwork book."
 

I have some interesting clips of the TV show and will post these on Instagram for you to see. We will post them soon!
Thank you, dear Annisa, for so generously sharing your talent with all of us. Your students are so lucky to have you!
