Hi Everyone! I just had a disastrous experience with JKM Ribbon and won't be ordering from them again. I use double faced satin ribbon for a few things and wondered if anyone has a source they would recommend?

And yes, I will post a review on JKM in the next few days.

Thank you!

JT

I have heard good things about Mary Not Martha on etsy. I haven't ordered myself though.

I really like the ribbons I've purchased from harts fabric. They have a beautiful rayon Petersham and I recently ordered some double faced satin too and was happy with it.

Nothing worse than bad service!
I sew with a lot of ribbons from Jane Means who is based in the UK. I tend to use more of their grosgrain or cotton ribbons, though they also sell some satin ribbons.

We have small store locally that I just recently visited. I just found their website. It isn't flashy but they have a lot of ribbon and are very pleasant. Here is their website: http://such-a-deal.com.

Zipperstop has added a ribbon business - Ribbons by Zipperstop. I've not yet bought any ribbons from them, but have never had a complaint about the original zipper business. Their real ribbon color cards seem reasonably priced.
