Thank you Di for allowing me to log in.  I have always loved the ribbon work you do and own one book, Perfect World, which I use often.

Thank you also for the various freebies you share and the latest of the Little Bird.  I look forward to making it.

I love the photos you share and the African Sunshine photos by your nephew, Bruce van Niekerk.  I hope you go from strength to strength with you beautiful work and books.

Dear Renn & Di


Thank you for your e-mail and the free gift.


I have just received my package, thank you. 

In words I cannot express my appreciation for your kind and loyal service. 

It is a soul-soothing hobby.  Thank you for all your help and advice.


Kind Regards

Dear Renn, 

Many thanks for DVD 1 and the complete kit which arrived today, less than a week after dispatch!

I am really pleased with it; especially the DVD which has been brilliantly produced. Believe me, I know about these things having worked for the BBC for 17 years.

The production values are first class; clear, logical step-by-steps and the post-production has been so imaginatively handled. 

First thing on Monday morning, I shall head off to my nearest sewing shop to get the necessary needles and beads then I shall start on my journey.

I have only done needlepoint on a printed canvas before so this really is a "New Beginning" for me. 

Once again,my grateful thanks, Stephen

I love my new kits from you and thanks so much as they seem to be so nice.

I am glad to get them and hope to begin them soon.

What lovely ribbons and patterns!

Renn, you did such a fine job putting this together.

Dearest Di

Very big congratulations to you and your team for all the hard work

in organizing the competition which has given SO many of us such pleasure.

Many congratulations to the tireless effort of the judges on our behalf.


I would also like to congratulate you on the wonderful personal service

one gets when ordering from your website.

It feels like we are ordering from and friend and not a business.

It really is amazing.

Warm regards and thanks,

Jane Stilgoe from Australia

Good morning Di...just wanted to let you know that I finally received my order. Your new book is beyond fabulous and exceeds my expectations.

I ordered two books and am giving the other as a gift to one of my best friends.

We get together regularly to sew and embroider..our favorite is crazy patch with embellishing

using silk ribbon, beads etc so I know she will be as thrilled as I am.
I follow your blog and love all the wonderful ideas and admire your talents

as well as those who graciously submit their work for us to see.
Thank you so much!

Dear Renn & Di,


This just to let you know that I collected my parcel from the post office today and I am thrilled with the contents. To receive a parcel from yourselves is always wonderful, the colors of the ribbons and threads always make my fingers itch to get started on a new project but this time a bonus hamper too.


It felt like unpacking a Christmas stocking and amazingly enough the kit from Daaft designs is one that caught my eye when I was browsing her website a while back.


Thank you both so much for all the pleasure you bring to my life and so many others too.
