Le Rouvray, Paris

I know my blog has been a little quiet and with good reason - I am currently travelling in Europe with my family.  Today, I was fortunate enough to visit the lovely Le Rouvray patchwork shop in Paris.  Le Rouvray is located in a typical Parisian little square near the Notre Dame Cathedral.

I was welcomed by a member of Le Rouvray staff who was more than happy to speak English and show me their beautiful selection of French fabrics and Provence fabrics.  There was also a beautiful display of quilts in the store including some divine vintage quilts.

Thank you, Le Rouvray - my visit rounded out a great day of visiting Paris monuments and gardens, drinking coffees and eating baguettes, croissants and crepes!


  1. Wow! Oh Wow! Wish I was there with you, next time you will have to take me along! Did you buy any fabric?

    Great pics too; brings back some wonderful memories.

    Enjoy Paris - the crepes croissants baguettes cheese and the wonderful culture and history.

  3. How amazing. I was just walking down memory lane today on my new blog page and posted pics of Le Rouvray too. It's a wonderful shop and the staff was wonderful. I posted the pic of the quilt I made with the fabric I purchased there. You can find it at Enjoy the rest of your travels and post other discoveries!

  4. How fabulous. I hope you bought some fabric there. Paris is such a beautiful city and the food, oh the food. Lucky you.

  5. Sounds like you are having a wonderful time Karen :-) Bridie

  6. Wow, how fantastic!!!! I am putting that on my list for when I visit Paris in 3 weeks time! Have a great time, enjoy the sights, smells and sounds of Europe - and make some wonderful memories to go with a wonderful quilt I am sure you will make when you return.

  7. Hope you'lfind some more wonderful shops
    enjoy it!

  8. That is so nice they allowed you to take photos. I was in the UK for vacation this year and the fabric/quilt shops would not let me take photos. I love Le Rouvray fabrics and made a quilt with them. Have fun with the rest of your trip.


I really appreciate your comments - they will appear shortly.
