So, onto our new challenge:


and thanks sooo much to The Ribbon Girl for being our lovely sponsor again!

Welcome to The Ribbon Girl online store - we are Mother and Daughter, Mary  and Andrea, and have always crafted (card making, scrapbooking, cake decorating, sewing, embroidery, soft toy making etc) but it became more and  more difficult to buy very small quantities of good quality ribbon, lace, and embellishments. In 2010 we decided to open our own online store The Ribbon Girl  so we could make very small (or large) quantities of top quality products available to all crafters at reasonable prices - so you can mix and match and  make your craft budget go further.   We only sell what we would use ourselves - Mary owns and runs the store while Andrea looks after the social side including  the Ribbon Girl challenges and our mega talented Design Team. Based in the UK,  we ship world wide and try to send all orders the same day whenever possible.So whether you like crafting in classic, vintage, rustic, shabby chic or modern style you'll be spoiled for choice! Ribbon Girl stocks an impressive  selection of gorgeous ribbons and trims from silk to hessian, a 100 different designs of vintage style, cotton, guipure and flat lace (all ribbon and lace is  sold by the metre in continuous lengths whenever possible) hundreds of charms and pendants, all available as single units.  Our Flower Shop is full pretty  flowers and beaded berries and we are stockists of Wild Orchid Crafts, Kort & Godt and many others, in mulberry, cotton paper, satin, organza; we have  gorgeous diamante and pearl embellishments; a vast array of buttons, twine, hemp, vintage style brooches, special occasion, bridal and seasonal  embellishments. Our Christmas Shop is open all year round and we also offer craft essentials such as top-stitch thread, sticky tape, Glossy Accents, Liquid  Pearls and Stickles, brooch backs, hair slides, hat pins etc Small orders are always welcome at The Ribbon Girl and we hope you enjoy  looking around the store - please contact us if you need advice or a sample - especially if you are planning a wedding and want to use lace or ribbons on  your invitations, wedding stationery, favours or celebration cakes

with this great prize:
