This weekend I visited Aiguille en Fete, a needlework and craft show held annually in Paris. It was a gigantic room, full of needlework enthusiasts shopping the latest needlework supplies and kits, as well as admiring a limited exhibition of today's textile artists, with Asia being the focus this year. Here are photos of my favorite sights from this weekend. Hope you like them!
