Sonhos / Dreams

Quem me dera estar por perto… em Paris, de 11 a 14 de Fevereiro, Grand Halle de la Villette.

I wish I were near by… in Paris, from 11 to 14th February, at Grand Halle de la Villette.

J’aimerais être là… à Paris, du 11 à 14  février à la Grand Halle de la Villette.

No meio de tanta oferta de ateliers, escolheria:
a técnica do Boutis, que descobri recentemente, 
a técnica do ponto de cadeia do bordado Lunéville, que penso ser o mesmo que o ponto de Beauvais,
a técnica do bordado em relevo, pelas autoras deste livro,
a técnica do bordado com fita
e já que lá estava ia saber o que é o bordado de Glazig . E tentava não perder as exposições

From such supply of workshops, I could choose:
the
Boutis technique, I met recently,
the
Lunéville embroidery and its chain stitch technique (tambour embroidery?), which I think is the same as Beauvais stitch,
the
three-dimensional hand embroidery technique (stumpwork?), by the authors of this book,
the
ribbon embroidery technique,
and being there Iwould like to know about
Glazig embroidery. And would try not missing the exhibits

  1. Oh, you and me both, Meri!! I was just looking over the same website the other day. It looks like it would be great fun! It’s fun to dream, isn’t it??!

  2. Yes! it would be great fun indeed, Mary! Who knows? may be one day…
    let’s go on dreaming ;)

  3. let´s meet up and go february next year!
    I was there 2005, and it was there that I first got inspired by needlework techniques other than cross stitch. lol! before L´aguille en fête, I was only doing cross stitch. It was a big big event, one day is not enough! lots of things to see and buy (€€€€!) I met Mireille there (japanese embroidery france) and the beadworks from the film “Les Brodeuses” were on exhibit. L´ecole Lesage were there too with their tambourworks. Books, books, books! threads, threads, threads! it was a needleworker´s dreamland.
    I took some photos before: http://home-and-garden.webshots.com/album/315262929OMxWjX

  4. Thanks for the link, Vincent! What beautiful photos!!!! Thank you!

    May be next year… :-)

  5. Is it me or France and the US are the only places with regular big events like that? I only know one big craft fair here – which I visited last year and I must say, it was not what I expected. There are two patchwork events here, too, but very badly organized. I see in american blogs that some places have monthly craft fairs – how cool is that??
    Do you have that in Portugal, Méri?
    I’ll put L’aiguille en fête in my life goals FOR SURE.

  6. Peut-être un jour nous irons y nous connaître, Catherine! ;)

    Samanta I think Australia has lots of stitching and handmade fairs – Sydney, Melbourn and more – along the year. Here we haven’t, unhappily…

  7. Acho que puz o meu comentário a este post noutro! Mas procura, que já vês a proposta!

  8. Afinal sou capaz de não ter enviado o comentário, pois não o encontro!
    Era mais ou menos assim:
    Vamos? Era óptimo dar-mos uma saltada a Paris, e é capaz de não ser tão difícil como parece à primeira vista! E passávamos lá o dia !5!!!
    Só não sei bem em que dia chega a minha amiga do Brasil, mas tudo se havia de resolver! O mano alinha, claro!
    Pensa nisso.

  9. I would love to go to this exhibit too! I’ve read about it on Facile de Cecile’s blog…

    I love the new look of your blog! Why did you change??
