Bonne Chance!

 
Well, if you have been following us on Instagram or Facebook, you know we have a NEW EMBROIDERY HOOP which we are so excited about!  Based on an old French Hoop, we designed an embroidery hoop with a brass ring and a steel coil wire which holds your fabric tightly in place.  It's light-weight so it doesn't put any stress on your hands and works best with a cotton or lighter linen fabric.  We are totally crazy about the new hoop and think you will be too!
To celebrate the New Year  - use discount code newhoopnewyear and receive $10 off the hoop!

Order your French Embroidery Hoop here

If you would like to order the French Hoop wholesale for your shop, please write to us at notions@frenchgeneral.com for wholesale information.

We're taking our show on the road and will be exhibiting at QuiltCon February 23rd-26th in Savannah, Georgia!
We will have lots of new pre-cuts, samplers, and fun French General kits to show off.  Be sure to visit our booth daily for our $5 special kits! Hope to see you there!

It just wouldn't be summer without our yearly trip to the South of France!  We are sold out of our 2017 France Getaway but would love to have you join us in 2018.  If interested, please send us a note to notions@frenchgeneral.com and we will put your name on the early-bird list!

Coming Soon!  Our latest quilting collection with Moda, Pondicherry, is due in any day now.  Filled with old block prints in French blues, antique reds and seaside greys - Pondicherry is the perfect Indienne inspired collection for a new quilt project!

See a sneak preview of Pondicherry and the quilt patterns here


Our love of fabric has been lovingly translated into our second collection of home interior fabric and trim for Fabricut.  Due out in February, this collection of linens, cottons, embroideries and wovens features the soft subtle colors of old France, as well as the deep charcoals and stark whites of contemporary France.

Available at frenchgeneral.com soon
 
Please note, we are now only open on Saturdays from 11-4pm

More fun workshops coming soon -
including Mimi Kirchner in April!
Happy New Year and thank you for following along on our adventures!

Is 8" the finished size of the block, so 8.5 unfinished?
