This first video shows how to iron silk ribbon to prepare it for embroidering.
This video shows how to securely thread the needle in silk ribbon embroidery.
In this video I show how to do the typical soft knot commonly used in silk ribbon embroidery, I do not care to use it but some embroiderers do. If I use a knot I use a quilters knot which I also show in this video. I am not suggesting that any of these methods is the only way to secure your work and most silk ribbon embroiderers do not use either knot but instead pierce the tails or come back with another needle and thread and secure the tails, both of which give a more smooth result to your work. Please use the method that you prefer for the result you wish to achieve.
