We stayed at a backpackers hostel, St Christophers Inn near Gare du Nord. The perfect location to start exploring the city. Our sponsor Bernina offered a fantastic voucher we spent fabric shopping at Anna Ka Bazaar and a lovely meal in a little restaurant (les Quilles) we enjoyed with lots of chatting and laughter.
Besides the Bernina vouchers the Paris Office the Tourism supplied us with citymaps, information and a rivercruise ticket. Unfortunately I had booked an early Thalys back home, so I had to skip the cruise.
We all had an amazing goodiebag with loads of fantastic fabric, buttons, zippers, pins, craft goodies, spools and patterns. So my thanks to Lillestoff, Cousette, Nosh, Stoffe.de, Telaria, Alles für selbermacher, Supercut, Imagine Gnats, Nutta, Mondepot, Tuttle Publishing, Aurifil, Snaply, Joyfits, Ottobre, Compagnie M, Doguincho, Titchy threads, Madeit patterns, Kid approved, Schneidernmeistern, Delia Creates, Willow & Co, Mouse house creations, Sofilantjes, Sewpony vintage, LBG studio, LoubeeClothing, Straightgrain, Elegance & Elephants, Hey June and Paisley Roots.
I can't wait to get started and sew up these new patterns with the fabrics I received, and I'm even thinking on doing some home deco.
