AEF 2008

Publié le par Potiron

Yesterday I went to l'AEF (Aiguille en Fête) in Paris!!!! a show dedicated to needle arts (embroidery, sewing, patchwork, boutis, trapunto, lace, knitting, felting, etc....)


What to say???? Today I'm sort of hungover..... but without drinking strong beverages....!


Negative side : Unbelievable crowds, literally human walls, near fainting status....


There wasn't enough space to eat as is the case in many Parisian "salons" (trunk shows)


Positive side : Fascinating and unbelievable exhibits, especially the Japanese, who were the guests of honor of this show....

But also from artists from other countries, or anonymous ones like the works done with Afghan embroidered squares:
