The main reason why we wanted to go to Paris was to check this show "Creations et Savoir - Faire" held by a well known craft magazine, Marie Claire Idees.
There were various stands of quilting, knitting, embroidery, scrap booking and cooking.
Once we stepped into a booth, it was hard to leave there quickly, so one day was not enough for us to see all around.
We had meetings about "Anata to Watashi no Quilt (Patch for Japan)" with Marylene (quilt) and Claire (crochet).
It was so great seeing them again!
Look at displays and exhibitions ...
While walking, we found this booth which we liked the most. Later it turned out that it was what Claire displayed and got the best award for decorating booths! (further info)
Marylene and Claire introduced us to a popular craft artist, Lea Stansal (her blog where you can find a picture of us!).
When we saw her book for the first time, we were amazed by her unique embellishments. What great books ...
We found one of Masako's books translated in French at the show!
So many inspiring things ... we enjoyed the show very much!
