Default can anyone please explain this to me?

Please can you tell me the difference between Offray and Schiff Grosgrain Ribbons? I have to order from the internet stores as it's virtually impossible to get hold of here in the Uk and what there is is astronomical! I paid 90p ($1.70) for 1 metre (1 1/2 yards) of grosgrain (1/2") ribbon and she only had 3 colours..........

Also is woven ribbon any good for making bows? I read a lot about Hobby Lobby, (wish we had one!) and their online store has woven ribbon. Is this a good place to buy it at all?

Thanks in advance ladies, am still loving all the fab ideas on here.

Offray & Schiff are two different brands of ribbon. Schiff offers 80 colors of the grosgrain ribbon--these colors haven't changed in quite a while. Offray continually discontinues and introduces new grosgrain ribbon colors--they change frequently. Fortunately, I have many resources and can usually find recently discontinued colors. Sometimes the names of the colors are used with both brands, but sometimes they aren't the same "shade." (Currant, for example--Offray Currant is much brighter than Schiff Currant) This is why some colors are listed twice.


Above is what I found on a Google search. I hope that will answer your question. Personally to get the best prices on ribbon, I would stick to the internet sites. Hopefully these places do send ribbon to the UK. If you do not know which sites to go to already let us know and we will direct you in the right direction.

Thanks very much for that! With all the ribbon types, bow types, clips, dresses, pants etc it all get a bit confusing! Add to that the tools and the fact that I can't get more than half of it here........... Bit of a newbie.

Any suggestions for ribbon would be great please, anywhere I can get the clips at the same time too. And the crochet hairbands Think it might be easier to just fly on over At least that's what I'm going to try and persuade hubby of
