We met early on Friday afternoon in the musée Galliera where Françoise Tetard Vittu showed samplers from the 19th c. and the very special "échantillons" of gowns embroidered by Eugénie Beauvais (see also book reviews and articles).
Discussion was possible afterwards in the library of the museum.
On Saturday Danièle Denise showed us the
embroideries in the beautiful and interesting exhibition
at Grand Palais (see also exhibitions).
For the french speaking people it was not easy to discuss in english and the english collegues had a hard time to follow the spoken french. But we all felt the need to work on a Vocabulary with drawings and photos in order to know exactly what the specialist of other countries are talking about.

a) at first we are going to collect embroidery
terms, expressions. We limit the work to European
countries. We are collecting basic stitches first, in
