Get ready for ribbons! Back-to-school projects are upon us, and holiday décor and gifts aren't too far behind. One of the fastest, easiest, and prettiest ways to add a bit of extra color and texture to just about any item is a lovely ribbon accent. It's time to check in with our friends atRenaissance Ribbons to see what's new. Join us, then sign up for our eNewsletter to enter to win a ribbon grab bag.
To start, we checked out the newly updated Renaissance Ribbons main website. It's brighter, smoother to navigate, and includes even more great images of their ribbons. Shop by the reel, link to their sister site to buy by the yard, or visit your favorite quality sewing and craft retail shop to find them in person.
Renaissance Ribbons is known throughout the industry for supplying some of the loveliest and most unique woven ribbons and trims available. A number of them are imported designs from France; many others are created by some of your favorite fabric designers, such asAmy Butler,Tula Pink, andFrench General. Their signature Jacquard ribbons are exquisitely woven, richly colored, and simply beautiful. So much so that the backs of the ribbons are almost of pretty as the fronts.
We spent a bit of time browsing and found a few things we had to share. You'll want to go back for yourself and wander about in all the wonderfulness.
The new Anna Maria Horner mini collection is something to love. The colors are lush and the patterns intricate and striking, featuring designs that coordinate with her Honor Roll, Pretty Potent, Dowry, Field Study, and Loulouthi fabric collections.
Make sure youwatch the sweet video Renaissance Ribbons created with some of their project ideas featuring Anna Maria's ribbons and fabric.
The debut ribbon pair from new Renaissance Ribbons designer, Karen Hennessey is great. You may recognize Karen from her original polymer clay designs or her new hand-painted needlepoint canvas line, Zecca.
The creative team at Renaissance Ribbons loves to "test stitch" the projects we design for them. We really liked their version of ourBitty Boho Bags, which they did in theirnew collection from sewing icon, Nancy Zieman.
An anchor designer for Renaissance Ribbons is Kaffe Fassett. His colorful fabric designs seem custom made for woven ribbons. There are dozens of Kaffe ribbon options from which to choose. We were drawn to the swirling Target ribbon withTumbling Blocks Multi-Color. Any of the 1½" Kaffe designs would be awesome for our Reversible Ribbon Belt.

These vintage ribbons are absolutely beautiful! The photos don’t give them justice. I plan on making a crossbody sling bag and am using Moda grunge fabrics for my backing. The grunge fabric is a perfect platform for these ribbons to to the subtle, colors. Can’t wait to make it!!
I just ordered this Ribbon for the 3rd time. This ribbon can be used in so many different projects. Has lots of color and a good width and the quality is great. I get so many compliments about the Renaissance ribbons I use.
I bought some other webbing from a major retail fabric store and it was relatively loose and flimsy. This webbing is stiff, feels substantial and stitches like a dream on my machine! Highly recommend.
I received a monthly bag kit from Renaissance Ribbons each month for the last 8 months or so. I also had three months of the black and white. I just love each bag. Once I got the zipper facing the right direction, they went together well. I am so pleased. I am giving the bags away as Christmas gifts. I have a lot of granddaughters.
These bag kits are beautiful! The directions and instructional video are well done. I can't wait to see the next kit's contents of fabric and ribbons! They will make gorgeous Christmas gifts.
They were amazing!!
My first project incorporating Tula Pink fabric and Renaissance Ribbons and I am loving the color palette and designs. There are so many possible project ideas for which this pack can be used! I am making a pop-up storage bin for my 12 year old granddaughter's room. She loves animals, visiting the zoo, and wants to be a vet!
Serious quality ribbon that matches the fabric. It will be perfect on the bag I’m making! I love this company as they make everything they do perfect!
Order came quickly. Nicely wrapped with special touches.
Always good quality as usual!
Haven't used yet but my expectations have been met. Very Cute Cats.
This webbing is great quality. Will work great for my next project.
Kit arrive well packaged and when I opened it, the fabric and ribbon were stunning! So pretty, I ordered more ribbon on the spot. I'm sure I'll be ordering more in the future.
The kit was wonderful. Using the Tula fabric was cheerful. . The Annie pattern was great. I made 3 more bags with velvet ribbon and adjusted the size after I made the initial bag. Having the add on videos was helpful. Great project!
Loving this kit club! The kit contained all the needed supplies which makes it super convenient to make without searching for the right size zipper or interface. The ribbons are gorgeous and enhances the pouch so much!
So enjoy receiving my lovely ribbons and Pretty fabrics from Tula. What a fun and easy project with great instructions from by Annie. Plus we got a thank you gift to make a key fob and I have ordered more ribbon to make more of the cute key fobs. Thanks Edith for a winning combination. Looking forward to the next three kits!!!!
