Opening Soon!

"I was all set to visit your store after the spot on Eye on L.A.  Unfortunately, you don't give any information about your location on your website.  Crossing you off my list of "must visits"."
Ouch - this was an e-mail I received yesterday.  I thought about deleting it and pretending I never saw it , and then I realized...the time has come.  I need to re-open French General.  Last May we packed up the little pink bungalow in Hollywood and moved our workshop about 15 minutes east to Riverside Drive.  Thanks to my family and friends, we've taken downs walls, installed a wall, painted, planted and primped....I think we are almost ready.  As of September 21st, we will officially be open on Mondays from 11-4 and every other Saturday for workshops, including jewelry, needle, textile and paper crafts.  A list of our workshop days and times will be posted on our website in September.
The new address is 2009 Riverside Drive, Los Angeles, California 90039 - so please put us back on your list of "must visits"!

Oh, goodie! I was going to come down a few weeks ago, but had to postpone my visit. I'm hopefully coming down in October so I'll get to visit you at your new location :~)

I'm so glad you are going to open soon, and on Mondays to boot!!
The Friday thing was impossible for me because my kids elementary school has a minimum day every Friday. Also, the out of town traffic on Fridays is deadly. Ugh!!
But now, Mondays!!! Yeah!! Definitely do-able. Thank you,
can't wait.

Well done Kaari - how you manage to blog as well as take a party of 16 girls to France and move your emporium is a mystery to me but then you are an all star girl andwe must try and catch up with you if that is possible. Elizabeth

I am so excited I am planning on visiting when the kids are back in school! Yeah! I'm Bringing my Girlie Friends too! Question when googling mapping you and going street side are you the building between WONS market and the Green building? or off a side street with the telephone pole in front?http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&ie=UTF-8&q=2009+Riverside+Drive,+Los+Angeles,+California+90039&fb=1&split=1&gl=us&cid=13683860718396921595&li=lmd

Just bought a charm pack of Rouenneries at my favorite quilt shop yesterday (the Country Loft in La Mesa, California). So inspirational, I can't wait for the bolts to arrive. Hope to make it up to LA to visit your shop in person.
