Who We Are

Barb and Jan are the co-owners of Creative Ribbon Works.

We are friends of thirty-plus years and after having had hi-tech careers, marriages, children, homes and gardens, we have returned to our passion of creating beautiful handiworks!

We met as newly graduated software engineers and formed a life-long bond.  Our fun non-work activities included gathering with friends to sew, crochet, knit or embroider.  After our lives got busier, the sewing evenings disappeared.  In 2010 we began creating again and started Creative Ribbon Works.

We adore textiles, colors, flowers, and creating!  Ribbon work incorporates all of these things and more.  We are excited about our venture together and love making beautiful and unique floral accessories for others to wear and enjoy.  We hope you find something here that will perk up a favorite outfit or make your special event even more special; something to bring you happiness and joy.

Purchasing Our Products

Our products can be purchased direct from Creative Ribbon Works.  Call 503.877.5754 or email info@creativeribbonworks.com.  We love to design and fulfill custom orders. 

Our website gallery shows a variety of flower creations that that we have made.  We have many more products which are available to order.  Our flowers typically range in price from $20 to $50.

If you see a flower you like in our gallery, but would like a different color, we are happy to let you know what colors are available.

Other Places to Find Us

We have had the pleasure of selling our flowers at the Pittock Mansion museum store and at a gallery in Pioneer Place in downtown Portland.  Currently, we do not have any flowers at those locations.

We are working on romantic styles for attaching to hats, for wedding sashes and as brooch and hair adornments.   We will list these in our Etsy store in the near future.
