    Bonjour
    Pour avoir habité la frontière Belge dans la première partie de mon existence, avoir eu également une grand-mère flammande issue de la famille Tircher et Von Hallen, folle de couture alors qu’elle se faisait habiller par les grands couturiers de l’époque, j’ai moi même par la suite voué à la couture un amour particulier. Pourtant c’est la plume d’abord qui fit l’objet de mon intérêt, via la presse et divers ouvrages où j’en jouais… Mais les chose étant ce qu’elles sont, il y a quelques temps j’ai décidé de la poser un peu, beaucoup pour me laisser aller à user du fil et de l’aiguille avec tout l’amour que je puis leur porter, dans une création où le lin a toute sa place et se fait le nid de la broderie qui redore plus encore son blason. Je ne suis pas sans savoir que l’histoire (encore) liée à ce fameux lin, a fait de la Flandre sune terre de prédilection où les fabriques et usines en nombre l’ont travaillé. C’est avec plaisir que j’ai parcouru votre histoire et il se trouve que je viens à Bruges prochainement, et que je me demandais s’il serait possible de visiter l’usine ou de trouver un magasin d’usine qui me permettrait d’acheter ce noble produit. Merci de l’attention que vous porterez à ma requête et à bientôt.
