Ellen, the owner of In Stitches, and her husband are jetting off to Paris this evening. For those of us who can't go (although we did offer to carry her luggage), we will console ourselves with some of the lovely French--or French-themed wares in the shop. Cue the Parisian Accordian music!
We have lots of needle-minders in the shop, including this adorable Eiffel Tower from Kelmscott.
We have drawers full of Au Ver A Soie.
And this lovely chart from Marie Suarez--"Histoire d'Amour."
A little Paris stocking canvas to stitch in needlepoint. We have lots of these for different places around the world. If you're a world traveler, commemorate your visits (or even the places you'd like to go someday) with a series of these little stockings. Note: We can send them out to a finishing service for you, if you prefer to stitch but not finish.
By Dames of the Needle, the "Shaker Box French Style."
We carry books! Here we have "Fleurs et Alphabets Fleuris," and the "Cross Stitch Bible"--both volumes of it!
A framed-in-the-shop "Alphabetissimo" by Papillon Creations.
"Paradis Perdu" by A Mon Ami Pierre:
Also by A Mon Ami Pierre, "Hornbook Alphabet Noir"
We have several beautiful charts by Relets de Soie--this is "Anne Weaver 1852."
Have fun, Ellen! Bon voyage!
