     If you are visiting Paris and only have limited time to shop, I can take you to see sewing,
     knitting  and craft shops off the beaten track.
 
     If you've already visited the main stores , I can take you where the costumers go,
     to the latest shop for couture fabrics opened in April 2013 and wholesalers in hidden courtyards.
 
      If you want a taste of Paris crafting shops I can take you on a walk through the centre of Paris
      to see yarn stores, embroidery supplies, a heritage haberdashery, Japanese sewing books,
      fashion students choosing fabrics, tassels for chateaux,
      all in tiny back streets and 19th century arcades.
 
     I meet you at your hotel and we visit Paris on public transport
     for four or five hours looking at the shops you 're interested in seeing.
 
      New!   Newly-opened shops hidden away in backstreets in the Montmartre St Pierre fabric district
