Paris Haberdashery

A little Trip to Paris…

Last week sort of blew my mind. Going back to work this morning is going to be a crushing blow to reality… I just wish I had some more pictures to show you.


Last week I met some awesome people who love sewing just as much as I do, if not more and spent time doing what we’re good at – Shopping! So, I probably thought I’d been restrained, but hey, who am I kidding?

I shared a bijoux Paris apartment with crazy disco lighting and chandeliers in every room with the fabulous EmmieTillyLauren and Kelly.

I got to meet so many amazing sewcialists/spoolettes/awesome people in general: CarmenNicoleJoostRhiannonJulie JoLisaClare and Tania.

I always get really nervous meeting people who I don’t know and feel really awkward but people were so welcoming and lovely. Just another reason why I love sewing so much!


This trip would not have been possible if it were not for the extraordinary efforts of Carmen who organised personalised goody bags for us all and a discount at the Coupon Shop St Pierre. Plus Julie from Jolie Bobines who took us on a walking trip of Paris. And to Tilly, for if she hadn’t mentioned it to me, I wouldn’t have gatecrashed this trip in the first place!

Thank you to: Maison Sajou, Ma Petite Mercerie, Peace and Wool, La manufacture Bohin,, Atelier Brunette and Coupon Shop St Pierre.

Then to top it all off, more sewing fun on Sunday at Tilly Towers with Tilly, Lauren, Emmie, Roisin, Jane and Karen.
