Oh, I am going soon! I have been longing to go to les Soeurs Anglaises in France ever since I first saw an ad for it in Selvedge Magazine several years ago. I leave Friday. Paris first for a few days, then the train down to Angouleme and on to Briancon, where this magical textile retreat paradise is located. I have already written about Jone Hallmark, who is teaching the week long workshop I am attending -- brilliantly creative, fun, and an enchanting person, she will lead what I might term a week long party of making for us lucky participants.
OK, I might just be gloating here but look at these photos and say that you envy me! this is a major treat for me. And there will always be Paris -- send me your favorite textile spots in Paris and I will follow up here when I get home.
