The Ribbon Retreat

I love ribbon. Grosgrain, organdy, or satin; solid, striped, or polka-dotted--I love it all. A girl can never have too many ribbons.

My passion (ahem, obsession) for ribbons was evident yesterday as I received my first order from The Ribbon Retreat. I was truly giddy. I literally oohed and aahed over these ribbons. They are not only pretty, but reasonably priced.
Before ordering, I came across this thread on Splitcoast that compares their colors to SU colors. I bought several rolls based on these comparisons, and I'd say they are pretty accurate. I won't say they are exact matches, but they coordinate nicely, so if you're anal about your colors being all matchy-matchy, you may want to order a sample of the ribbon before you buy five yards of it.

Check out the colors in those striped ribbons--yummy! The red/white/pink ribbon has stitching, too! Love it!
If you think I am kidding about my obsession with ribbon, I'm not. This is my first post about ribbon, but it will definitely not be the last...I'm in two ribbon swaps right now. :D
