I love the quality and colors in this ribbon. It gave my purse the jazz it needed while keeping the purse simple. Great product.

I haven't received it yet

Delighted to find this shop

These are the most beautiful ribbons! I’m using them to add to necklines of shirts, accent inside of collars for button downs and for visible mending. Stock is changing all the time so I’m already making my next order. Shipping was fast. Great shop!


These ribbons are small works of art. I am so delighted by them. Gorgeous, deep colors; beauty with a touch of whimsy. They arrived quickly and well- packaged. I can’t wait to use them and shop Renaissance Ribbons again!

Great experience- as usual

Have ordered several times and had a very good experience each time. The kits are as shown and the shipping is prompt.

I love Tula Pink

I can't wait to get into my sewing room for my first bag using Tula Pink fabrics. I love that the kit has everything that you need for the project.

great for beginner

12 year old is making this, has been sewing since she was 7. This is a lot of firsts for her, but she is wanting to do it. Proud grandma here. Not finished yet so no picture.

Love the Blue

This is my second order for this particular ribbon. It’s gorgeous. The blues are striking and easily enhance bags of all types and shapes.

Tula pink Mystery club

I love the Renaissance club with Tula Pink fabrics! I am always searching for new Tula pink kits and this fits the bill!! I hope this never ends!

byAnnie Zippers

The colors are wonderful! They coordinate with the ribbons as well as the fabrics.
The perfect addition to my ribbon bags!

Love the kits!

I love how everything is included in the kit! I have gotten patterns that were on my wish list!

Tula Pink

Honestly I love the fabric selection and notions! But I really have no use for the caddy for a walker. So I’ll use the supplies in another project probably.

Great opportunity to try something different

I have enjoyed making wonderful Tula Pink bags. I get compliments on everything I’ve made. Quilt shops in my area don’t always have a great selection of her fabrics so I count on these projects because the fabrics always coordinate.

Love the ribbons!

Arrived quickly! Will enjoy embellishing bags with the ribbons.

Beautiful fabric in generous cuts. Love any kit from Renaissance Ribbons

Cute Ribbon

Bought this ribbon for our own “Trash Panda”. It made a beautiful collar.

Great backpack

This backpack is so easy and durable. I enjoy mixing and matching fabric.

VIP Club

I am opening that there will be some real value to this going forward.
After one year I am not so sure, but I AM renewed.
I would like MORE opportunities to benefit from...

Sew Beautiful Ribbon

Beautiful ribbon!!! Haven't decided where to use yet.

Beautiful ribbons

I bought this as a add on to my order in large part because of the Jacobean floral ribbon and colors. The colors on these and the other ribbons I purchased are lush, rich and vibrant. I look forward to using and enjoying all of them.

Gorgeous & handy

This 2 inch ribbon allowed me to enlarge a beloved denim skirt. I cut opening down both sides and inserted the ribbon for more room. Would love to see more 2” ribbons with a vertical design element!

Chevron Ribbon Bag PDF Pattern

Very please with the quality of the weeding!

Beautiful Details

This ribbon is so realistic with its colors and design. The Dala Horse is a favorite motif after traveling to Denmark and seeing so many of them… figures, prints, fabrics, etc. The flowers, hearts, and detail on the horse are perfect!

Perfect holiday trim!!!

I wanted some ribbon to use in the Christmas stockings that I am working on for local foster families. I am thrilled to say the Red & Green Holiday Garland was perfect for my application (size and beauty) and delivered quickly, so it didn't delay my progress. I am very happy!!!
