I am so thrilled to be able to take part in the 1st National boutis day organized by France Boutis ! I am going to be in Europe and amazingly, I am able to go to France this particular weekend. I have signed up to take a class with renowned French contemporary boutis designer and architect, M. Hubert Valeri - so I will be spending all day Saturday enjoying that class, visiting with friends old and new, as well as just enjoying being in the middle of some fabulous boutis pieces.
There will be lots of photos afterwards to enjoy (I bought a new camera especially for this trip), but bear in mind it is not always allowed to photograph things in France, so I will only be able to show those where permission is given. I will be staying with Lou and we have a wonderful weekend of friendship and stitching planned. I have one suitcase - and it already has plenty of sewing supplies in it to go to France !
Here are the official flyers for the exhibition - go if you can, be sure to check the France Boutis blog for more information and links to other articles about fabulous first "Salon".
