Les Soeurs Anglaises

A couple of months ago I had the good fortune to be invited to an event held in the fabulous haberdashers that is Raystitch on behalf of Les Soeurs Anglaises, an outfit who run high end textile workshops in a stunning location in France.

I drooled over their workshop programme and accommodation set out in their lovely brochure and chatted with fellow crafters. I met the lovely Lottie from Lotts and Lots who wore an amazing necklace she'd crafted herself - do hop over to her blog to get an eyeful of handmade jewellery loveliness. 

LSA were also hosting a Textile Jigsaw of Words competition: the brief was to embellish a piece of fabric in the shape of a jigsaw with a quote of your choice. LSA would then combine all the pieces into a quilt which would be auctioned off for the Cambodian Children's Fund.
I'm always up for a challenge and as the prize was a place on one of their wonderful workshops abroad, I set to work ...

My jigsaw was one of many entries that day and the standard was awesome ...

Sadly I didn't win, but my piece did get a 'best of the rest' mention on Les Soeurs Anglaises website later that month. Here's the winning piece crafted by Claire Sounes -
