I am very interested in ribbon embroidery but don't have much idea about it. Can anyone help me with the type of cloth, needles and ribbon needed to start with embroidery?


I would recommend you to use Caneva hand sewing needles with dull tip. Also, a ribbon of about 0.7 mm is easy to handle. Take a look at ideas on Pinterest (https://www.pinterest.co.uk/), usually, they have DIY ideas and tutorials

    What is a Caneva needle? If it's a brand, please could you edit your answer to explain a little about the properties of these needles, and why they're good for ribbon embroidery?
