I picked up the coolest book at Hobby Lobby yesterday and it's titled
Ribbon Embroidery and Stumpwork

Here's the book on Amazon

which of course, got me to wondering ...

How *old* is Ribbon Embroidery?  I poked around google a little, and it
said 1700's because that's when ribbons were "invented."
