Hello and greetings to all,

I am trying to locate a small red book that I want to buy for planning my trip to Paris next year. I bought a copy of a similar book in Nancy's Sewing Basket in 2011. It was a book about London. It includes where all of the textile oriented stores and museums are as well as notable sights to see.

Thanks!!

Jennifer

I can't speak to the 'small red book' that might show textile shops, but when I spent a week in Paris, I found MapEasy's Guidemap Paris to be a wonderful companion! Find it here. You might also find it at a book store like Barnes & Noble/Books-a-Million/etc.

Of course, back then, I wasn't into sewing, so I wasn't looking for textile/fabric shops.

Whoo-hoo, I'll be in Paris at the end of August and I'm not coming home until end of January!

I don't know which guidebook you are referring to but I have several so far - and also a friend who lives in Paris to show me around. If I come across the one you're looking for I'll let you know.

Just "google" textile shopping in Paris and you will find a wealth of information.
Coupon means a cut piece or remnant and remember to take your metric to yard chart along! Sales people can seem brusque compared to most American sales people, but they are usually just busy and business like and used to people who know exactly what they want. So many goodies...take an empty soft sided suitcase and have fun!

It isn't red, but I have a book "Paris de fil en aiguille" by Delphine Loez and Virginia Pount which sounds like what you're describing. It is in French. I don't remember where I got it :(
