2nd National Boutis Salon - France Boutis
Next year France Boutis will be hosting their 2nd National Salon. I went to the inaugural one in 2012 and it was fabulous, a must for boutis lovers, so go if you can. The list of exhibitors has not yet been released, so I will post that when it comes out. Mr Cabanel is well-known for his collection of courtespointes and boutis, which he has amassed over many years. Parts of his collection have been featured in a number of books and referenced in many others. I will be there for all three days (more about that later) so come by and say hello if you visit.
This is a blog where I want to share about one of my passions - the Boutis - which is an old and beautiful Provencal art of the needle. I also love applique quilts, and make them often - usually big ones that take a long time ! Otherwise I love travelling, especially to our 100 year old cottage on the Southern Wine Route in Germany.
