Last week, I attended one of these meetings, and had the pleasure of meeting 8 other women, all committed to mastering this traditional craft.
The women all came ready to work on their latest piece.
|Danielle with Marie-France, who was coordinating the afternoon.|
|Giselle, hard at work perfecting her tiny stitches.|
|Annie-Claude, Mme le President (seated) and Marianne. Both are seasoned "boutisseueses" who are generous and willing to share their knowledge and expertise with others.|
|(Left to right) Betty, very focussed on her "point de piqure", one of the intricate stitches used in boutis; Danielle's husband, who charmed us with some freshly cut, fragrant lavander from their garden; Dominique, Marie-France and Dominique.|
Merci beaucoupe mesdames!
