L’Atelier du Patchwork – Ferrette France

Tuesday, May 12th, 2015

While visiting Switzerland we were invited to the opening of Michele Cohendet’s quilt show in Ferrette France. These are 70 ladies who meet weekly to create handmade quilts. They have been meeting since 1996 and every stitch in each quilt is done by hand. It was an amazing show with French champagne and lovely food. Ferrette is an old town dating back to 1572. The theme of the show as Houses.

It was a pleasure a meet a fellow wool lover Segolene Schweitzer at the show. She had her wonderful wool book on display.

Thanks to Astrid and all the wonderful ladies who made me feel so welcome in Switzerland. It is always fun to stitch with ladies from different nationalities as we all stitch differently. Students travelled from Austria, Germany, France, Belgium, Ukraine and Switzerland. I taught two different classes, my Greta Needle Roll and the Chick Sampler.  We used lots of my new #8wt Perle cottons ‘Eleganza’ as well as Razzle and Dazzle.
