Embroidery Kits and Samplers

We've designed a series of embroidery kits to get you stitching!  Each of our samplers are printed on a medium weight linen with a grey ground and grey artwork.  Each sampler comes with a simple stitch guide, showing you the stitches we love to use - but you are free to use any stitches and any colors!  Not for the faint of heart, these samplers may take you a bit of time...but they are worth the effort.  Enjoy!

Summer Ledger 2014

Bonjour!

We are off to France this month - excited to be returning on our Chateau Getaway for the 
6th year in a row!  We will spend four weeks in the South of France exploring flea 
markets, eating our way through farmer's markets and creating some beautiful new ideas in 
our craft workshops!

We have just opened up our weeks for next summer 2015 - we are excited to host both Amy 
Butler and Wendy Addison again...as well as a very special French General week which will 
focus on antique French textiles - how to find them, clean them and work with them!



If you would like to join us, you can reserve your spot today by signing up here:

https://www.frenchgeneral.com/chateaugetaway2015/signups.php

Meanwhile, back at the ranch on Riverside Drive....French General will be open all 
summer, Tuesday through Saturdays from 12-5pm.  We will be offering a wonderful line up 
of summer workshops including flower making with Arlene Baker, doll making with Julie 
Ippoliti, and hand-sewing with Merry Cox...just to name a few of our upcoming classes.

 
To see a full list of summer and fall workshops visit us here:

I hope you have a cool, creative summer and learn something new!

Merci!
