London and England was great. I was there with 48 students and it was a wonderful discovery for them. London, Cambridge, Windsor and Eton was on the tour. I particularly enjoyed Windsor as I had never visited it before!
As soon as I arrived from London, I packed my suitcase again and went to the Meditteranean for a short family vacation.
On the way to the coast, I drove by Carcassonne and its famous walled medieval town. I didn't stop there as I had visited it many times already but chose to stop in Pexiora! Indeed, I knew that last weekend, there was a small quilt and embroidery market. It is not big but it has everything a stitcher can dream of! There were very nice and welcoming people, a nice exhibition and gorgeous booths, as well as talented designers.
What more can you ask for ?
Nothing... but from your point of view, I think you can ask for a few photos ;-)
So here they are.
I took pictures of the things that appealed to me. So it is my biased view of...
There was a fan of Born To Quilt for sure! I could recognize many designs from Vero's books. But before I left I wasn't able to find Isabelle C to congratulate her about her beautiful work. I love what she did very much! Congratulations Isabelle ;-)
The booths and the talented designers.
Les Secrets de Marie. Rarely have I met so nice a person. She has several quilts published in Quiltmania magazine.
Marie-Thèrèse de Saint Aubin and her delicate stitched flowers.
Atalie and her hand-dyed threads.
Atelier des Fées Brodeuses and an amazing booth filled with stitched treasures (and I cannot show you everything that was on display!!!)
It gives you an idea of the richness of this event. We spent a wonderful afternoon in Pexiora. Thank you very much to the people working for this event.
