Scissors, scraps of rags and thimbles in my hand since I was little, I never stopped tinkering with my needles.
At 8 years old I transformed and redecorated an old piece of furniture into a Barbie house. From dresses to pants, from hangings to tablecloths, from making furniture to plates made of juice capsules…. Everything went there! With always a preference for textiles.
As a teenager, it was mine: skirts, pants, jackets and others… Trends from the 80s…. (Please do not ask me for photos!)
With the arrival of children, it is for them that I sew, especially for my daughter (she does not show you photos either…).
And then comes the discovery of patchwork, early 90s: a revelation!
Since the virus took me, it hasn’t stopped feeding me…
A few years later, at the request of some friends, I embarked on the adventure of lessons.
The workshop is now a multitude of courses in different disciplines. 3h00 lesson or one-day course, given by a few speakers or by myself for the pleasure of transmitting our knowledge, our constant learning, or simply exchanging ideas, always accompanied by tea and small biscuits (sometimes, a small biscuit becomes big cake, it’s true…). This is the life of the workshop…
But no class without supplies! And no supplies without a store…
From the year 2000 to the present day, the workshop has gone from a modest fabric shelf to the Ali Baba cave you know (if not, stop reading! Jump in your car! ).
And since, supplier of these ladies for their creations of patchwork, embroidery, cardboard, framing, old-fashioned bears, rag dolls, and much more!
In recent years, requests for online orders have been increasing. Unfortunately, the old site of the workshop was not adapted to answer it in an optimal way. This is why in the fall of 2014, we are going to make this a reality!
The shop we are preparing for you now will be more accessible and will open the doors of the workshop to those who are not lucky enough to be able to go there. I had to open it…
Who said that our computers, tablets or other smartphones isolate us? Distances are getting shorter!
