Who I am Who I am

I first discovered embroidery when I came across some bonnets, which my great grand mother used to wear at the beginning of the 19th Century. I thought they were fascinating and I started studying them with a magnifying glass. From then on, my passion for all embroideries grew bigger and it is by studying old pieces and repairing them to their original condition that I have learned the skills of this fine art.

I was practising white (and colour) embroidery for several years, when in 1994, I won the "Un des Meilleurs Ouvriers de France" title in white embroidery.
"Un des Meilleurs Ouvriers de France" is a national competition held every 3 years where the very best craftsmen and women in the county are awarded gold, silver and bronze medals in their particular field of expertise by the Ministry of Education.
I was required to produce 2 masterpieces: 1 table runner and 1 complementary decorative piece. The drawings were set and my skills were assessed on the stitches used, the quality of work and the overall effect of the embroidery. Altogether I spent more than 900 hours, over 1 and a half year, researching, sampling and making these 2 pieces.
I chose to use the technique called "Vosges" embroidery: raised stitches, pulled threads... on a very fine cotton fabric, which makes the stitches stand out.
