About Di van Niekerk

Di van Niekerk is a professional fibre arts instructor- author and designer. She started with needlecraft at a very young age and has always been fascinated by colour and texture. She has taught many kinds of needlecraft and makes her own range of silk and organza ribbons which is exported worldwide to needlecraft stores and studios. Her business, Crafts Unlimited, was founded in 1988 and it has grown from strength to strength. She is regularly invited to teach at needlecraft conventions overseas and her best-selling books have been translated into many languages. Crafters from all over the world, visit her interactive website: www.dicraft.com for inspiration, supplies and information. Di loves to teach and is always willing to answer questions about her books, products, techniques and stitches. Her mission is to teach silk ribbon embroidery, integrating it with other crafts such as card- making, jewellery-making, knitting, crazy quilting, fibre art and dress design and to show just how easy, enjoyable and rewarding this hobby really is! Di has written 10 books on embroidery. Marina Zherdeva learnt knitting, cross-stitch embroidery and needle painting from her mother and great-grandmother even before starting school. Later she added sewing and dress design to her skills. Completing a PhD and MBA, looking after her family and coping with intense work pressure meant that her hobbies were put aside for a many years. When she saw magnificent pieces of silk ribbon embroidery in 2010 she fell in love with this needlecraft and saw that as an opportunity to immerse herself in her beloved handcrafts again. Marina is self-taught in this needlecraft and is enthusiastic about mixing techniques. Her efforts are aimed at making silk ribbon embroidery popular in Russia. She started a non-commercial educational project and an on-line collection of magnificent pieces of silk-ribbon embroidery with needlecrafters from all over the world (www.ribbon-art.net). Her own collection of embroidery is presented in detail on her own website www.ribbonart.ru. This collaboration with Di van Niekerk is her first book.
