Aiguille En Fete 2015!! posted on February 19 2015 in Chinese Embroidery, Exhibitions, Indian Embroidery 1 Comment

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!

I think my favorite is the Eiffel tower. Do you know what type of embroidery it is?
