I just received my first two kits from "The French Needle" and OMG they are awesome. I must tell you, your stash is not complete without one of these kits!!!!!! Even my DH was impressed!!!! Even though he is sure our kitchen will be a different color by the time I finish them!!!

Hello, I just last night had a chance to sit down and really peruse my beautiful new alphabet books, they are really lovely. I can't wait to stitch something from them, now if only I can find the time!!!! Thanks so much for making them available to those of us here in the US. I have your site bookmarked so that I can pop over to it and see what else I may "need". I hope that your endeavor is doing well, I'll continue to spread the word.

Love, love everything I have received!! Your designs are always worked on when they come and do not sit in a folder waiting for me to be inspired to do them 'someday', My wish list for The French Needle is really long. Thank you so much for such a beautiful selection.

"I ordered the Rouge du Rhin alphabet book last month and wanted to tell you how pleased I am. I was anticipating something wonderful and was right. This book lends itself to heirloom stitchery and I can hardly wait to finish the birthday project for my sister and start one for my daughter. I already have a long wish list for The French Needle."
