I always enjoy hearing from our customers, especially when they have such nice things to say!


"You are killing me with these scarves! I received my first order from you last week, and it was even more beautiful in person. Now I see this lovely one today! Thank you for offering these, they are breathtaking!" 
- Customer in U.S.

"I just received my Sophie Digard Carre Scarf - it is SO fabulous - even better than I had hoped - the colors and the textures are so unique and beautiful. Thanks so much with your help in selecting it - and I will definitely consider this as the beginning of my collection from you!" 
- Customer in Australia

"Wanted you to know I just received my order ... I LOVE them both, and am so excited to find your shop. Many, many years ago I was in Norway and they had available the most beautiful options in shops there. I have been looking around for years for something comparable and of the same quality.....thinking I've found it with The French Needle. I am not a very good embroiderer, but have always loved the look and if I do a piece want good quality and beauty. So thank you."
- Customer in Missouri

"I was in France for two weeks again this year, but find your selections are still the best!"
- Customer in Maryland

"I'll be sure to come back again soon-I just love your taste and your wonderful attention to detail. It always feels like I am visiting an old friend...... but because your collection of lovely things reflects so keenly my taste for the "creme" of needlework supplies..."
- Customer in Ireland

".....glad also that word about your site is getting around! You offer something most unusual in today's market (a) beautiful treasures and (b) from viewing the site to receiving an order in my hand, very elegant customer service. I really appreciate both!"
- Customer in Ireland

"I have ordered from you with great success, and when my friend asked for a recommendation for someplace to purchase a gift for her sister, I jumped at the chance to send her to your site. She placed the order, had it shipped to her sister in Boston and is over-the-moon with compliments! And, her sister raved about the packaging as well as the gifts! Thanks for making me look good!"

"....I have been so pleased with everything I have purchased from you. I always gravitate toward one of the designs I have gotten from you when deciding to start a new project and have never left something unfinished. That being said, I just really think I may only purchase from The French Needle in the future. You truly do a wonderful job selecting things to bring back to the US and I hope you will always continue to do so, at least until my arthritic hands can take no more."
- C.S.

"I have been meaning to email you and tell you "thank you" so much for your beautiful shop. After seeing you in "Victoria" magazine and the "Violettes" cross stitch on the page, I knew I had to have it. I can't wait to start. It is so unique and "French," simply beautiful. So thank you once again. I can't wait to have another look in your shop! It's amazing - here I am on the other side of the world and I can shop from home!"
- Customer from Queensland Australia

"The two Sophie gems arrived today and they are just stunningly beautiful! The fine craftsmanship and gorgeous colorways are mesmerizing! Wow!! I'm thrilled. Thanks for everything and I'll stop back soon to shop some more on your wonderful site :) So many fine things to wish for :)"

"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."
- Customer

"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"
- Customer from the Midwest

“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.”
