Sarah Lechner - Embroidery Workshops * Austria * September-October 2015

Austria is one of my favourite places and Sarah Lechner's studio where you will stitch is just off the main Salzburg to Vienna railway line with free pickups included in course costs.
This is a lovely opportunity to learn new needlework and textile skills with a great practitioner. Courses are for two days and cost €350 including simple B&B accommodation on Sarah's farm - two courses back to back cost €650. The exchange rate for the Euro is the best it has been for years - what is to stop you?

SOLD 3 Cotton Mouchoirs from Musée Etoffes Mulhouse * £8 €18 $30 Shipping Included

I fell in love with the Musée de l'Impression sur Etoffes in Mulhouse - do visit if you are going to see the DMC factory.
I grabbed these pretty cotton mouchoirs as a light souvenir of the old printed cottons to take home in a very heavy bag
and I have them still in their new condition - I have opened the box simply to scan them for you. Each one is about 12" square (30cm square)
and they are accompanied by a little explanatory leaflet in French, English and German
