l’Aiguille en Féte is a yearly craft show in Paris devoted to needlework (embroidery, couture, quilting, knitting, lace, and others). It has two forms – a 4-day public exhibition, expecting 250 vendors and 45,000 visitors, and a 3-day professional trade show. The professional show will run March 9-11, so I’m concentrating on the public event here.
There are some classes associated with the public event, planning_au_21_janvier-1 including “Bijou en dentelle aux fuseaux” by Florence Quinette, and “Le Reticello” by Giuliana Buonpadre. Participants are limited in the classes, and cost is extra.
