Such a sad week for my sewing life !!!!

Carole from Madeleine Soie et Laine

I have been a desperate "slow mo" in all my sewing projects. Last Saturday, I though I would sew for at least 5 hours and instead I did a little 90 minutes before taking a walk with my DH and spending with him the rest of the after noon in a tile store to finish our bathroom renovation project.

This is terrible, I have nothing interesting to show :-( bad blogger that I am.

On top of this sewing lethargy, this week is a very sad week "sewingly" speaking. A very sad week for me. My favourite fabric store is closing. Not closing to go on vacation, but closing for ever. Sigh, sigh, sigh.

I can here you say that there are other stores in Montréal. Like this one, none, there are none!!!

Madeleine soie et laine was the fabric store where I bought 90% of fabric and notions I use. They had fabric my style, in all categories of prices, for all occasions and seasons. They had wonderful buttons, zippers and such a great spirit!

I am very sad. May be this a bit why I don't feel like sewing. All I have in my stash (more or less) comes from Madeleine. All my current project are made with wool I bought there.

I would love to find a solid partner and keep it open. Do you know any one living in Montreal who would like to have a fabric store ? I am open to all suggestions. I have great ideas to make this store a very popular and unique one. With my managing position at the Université de Montréal, I need a partner who could be there 5 days a week. I cannot do it alone.

I am very, very sad. :-(

  1. Quelle triste nouvelle, je comprends très bien ton désappointement. J'habite Rouen qui compte plus de 150 000 et il n'il y a que 2 magasins de tissus qui pratique des prix exorbitants et l'autre qui ne vend que des choses assez ordinaire, quand à la mercerie, c'est la même chose.

  4. Salut Anne,
    C'est quoi cette horrible nouvelle? Madeleine Soie et Laine qui ferme? Moi qui me réjouissais à l'avance de pouvoir dépenser mon retour d'impôt en tissus de chez Madeleine!!!!! Il me semble que ce magasin était pourtant bien fréquenté? Pourquoi elle ferme, au fait? Je nous souhaite à toutes que tu trouves un(e) partner pour le garder ouvert; tiens-nous au courant!
    Bises
