The show was held near the station of "Porte du Pantin" which was on the same line (Line 5) as the closest one from the hotel.
It was open from 9:30 am to 7pm on Thursday and Friday, from 10am to 7pm on Friday and from 10am to 5pm on Sunday. As we had to wake up early every morning, we had croissant and apple pies for our breakfast in our room, which we got at our favorite bakery nearby.
Walking up stairs of the station, there it was. The fair was waiting for us!
Paris was actually colder than we had imagined. We heard that a cold wave had hit wide areas of Europe so we brought as many hot patches (Hokkairo in Japanese) as we could.
On the 2nd floor, there were my displays.
It formed like a u-shape, so we hung 2 quilts on the outside of the walls and the other 7 quilts on the inside.
Maybe it is unclear to see them because of the dark lights.
If French people pronounced "Masako", the sound would be like "Mazahko".
No wonder why it happened ...
What a shame!
The French don't seem to hesitate to praise somebody! I was complimented on my works very much. I had never been told "C'est magnifique" so many times right to my face:-)
Yet they like crochet and embroidery, they had never seen quilts like mine which had a combination of knitting and quilting.
Without Catarina, Marylene and Claire, it would not have been realized ...
