The shop is nestled in the beautiful Burgundy countryside, behind the home of its owner, Veronique Requena. I felt like I'd stepped into one of my favourite country stores in the US!
Veronique has filled her shop to the brim with wonderful fabrics and wools. She teaches, designs patterns, and writes books and magazine articles as well. Her latest mystery quilt is displayed on the ceiling of her shop.
She found room to display two of the quilts from my "Country Comforts" book in her shop and on Sept. 24th I was happy to sign copies for her customers.
If anyone had told me when I first started quilting that someday my quilts would be displayed in France, and that French quilters would be buying my books, I would never have believed them!
I loved being here!
It was a dream come true for me!
What else did we do this week? Well, let's see. We explored some more medieval towns,
and some more cathedrals.
We visited Chenonceau chateau in the Loire Valley,
including its incredible flower and vegetable gardens.
Martine and several of her friends from http://www.quiltinusa.blogspot.com/ had visited me
in July on their way to the quilt show in Sisters, Oregon.
She served us the most wonderful meal, finished off with this delicious fruit tart for dessert!
And I loved seeing the quilts she's made and the ones she's currently working on!
