Opening Day

After a much needed, long, summer break, French General will finally be open again - starting Monday, September 21st from 11-4. To celebrate our new neighborhood and workshop, please come join us for an afternoon of vintage crafts. Jody will be teaching a Rouenneries flower class and I will be teaching a Button jewelry class - workshops are free for the day - you just have to reserve your spot at the table. Come learn something new - see an old friend or two and have a glass of cava to celebrate our new location: 
2009 Riverside Drive
Los Angeles, California 90039
If you are planning on crafting at the tables, please leave me a comment or send me an e-mail and we'll save you a seat.
(How about that new sign? We're hoping to out smart the person who "borrowed" our last one - this time it's painted on the wall so there's no messing around!)
See you Monday!

My heart sings, the 4th home ( as I remember) for French General, and at every address, I feel at home. A place where my toes curl with discovered old treasure and new ideas. Wish I could be there, I am in sprit! OX Hol

I am so glad I found your blog! I have been a fan of yours for quite a few years. I was fortunate enough to stumble upon your shop our first time to NYC in November of 2001. I was exploring SOHO and was totally entranced by your charming store. I spoke with two lovely women and maybe one was you?! Anyway, the next year we returned and I searched the streets but you had disappeared. I thought I remembered wrong but later learned you had moved. So I found your website and have bought your books. Thank you for your wonderful inspiration. I have never been to LA but if I ever do, I hope I can visit your current shop. Keep up the amazing work!

Congratulations, Kaari! Here is a posting about your «Rouenneries» fabrics and all the wonderful places on the web that use them in quilt construction. Enjoy!
