Stitching up Paris

The Insider’s Guide to Parisian Knitting, Sewing, Notions and Needlecraft stores.

Discover where to find beautiful fabrics, glorious knitting yarns, elegant needlework, beads and ribbons, old fashioned notions and romantic vintage laces and linens.


These detailed shop descriptions would be enough on their own to make this book worth buying, but there’s so much more. Throughout the book you’ll find Neighborhood Notes with sightseeing recommendations close to the shops…..

You learn so much about Paris from a completely different viewpoint that it’s an interesting book even if you’re not into fiber arts (like me) or don’t plan on visiting Paris anytime soon.

Heather Stimmler Hall – Secrets of Paris


I feel like the stars are aligning for my trip to Paris even more every day. Last week two Paris based Kiwis published what might just be the travel guide of my dreams.

It only arrived in my letterbox yesterday, but I’ve already read most of it and am planning after-class outings for my trip. I think exploring Paris’ arrondissements by way of knitting shops is a great way to get off the usual tourist routes and find some little-known places.
