Last time we were together it was all about buttons. More than just fasteners, buttons held center stage as an embellishing element. This time let's talk about ribbon. Sure, it is thought of primarily as a decorative trim to traditionalists, but just as buttons can be so much more, why limit your use of ribbon? An interview with, and project from, designer and ribbon-crafter Elaine Schmidt is sure to broaden the way you think about ribbon.

She will share some of her favorite tricks and tips and talk about how her childhood days of ribbon collecting turned into a career she loves. Her enthusiasm is contagious, and her point of view is refreshing. She has spent years using ribbon to create a bounty of beautiful and unique projects, and she shares her ribbon-love with everyone. Maybe her ideas and tips will inspire you to create something special of your own.
