L'Aiguille en Fête * Paris * 10 - 13 February 2011

It's that time of year to start planning ahead for the fabulous L'Aiguille en Fête event which will take place between 10 - 13 February next year. The venue is the Grande Halle de la Villette near the Porte Pantin in Paris. There are a number of handy hotels nearby where you can stay including a Mercure, Etap and Ibis. This is the best needlework market and exhibition event in the whole of Europe and is not to be missed - and certainly don't forget to travel with an empty suitcase. The spotlight this year is on Lace. Click here for more information.

If you fancy dipping into the history of Paris in preparation for your visit, then you might enjoy one of my favourite writer's books -  Graham Robb's Parisians: An Adventure History of Paris. Graham will guide you spellbound through the most fascinating nooks and crannies, above and below Paris.
