France stitching shops

I just landed in France for an extended assignment. Even though it is home to DMC, I am disappointed with the difficulty I have had finding great cross stitch supply shops. Does anyone know any good shops in France they can recommend? Alternatively, does anyone have any great online shops with reasonable international shipping? Thanks in advance!

    Why not try emailing something like www.jardinprive.com and tell them you are in France and ask if they could help you with shops or purchasing items while in France. I once had sewandsew from the UK mail me something to Canada and they were great to work with and I received my order quite quickly too. Go to top

    Even though France is a home of DMC, shops there are small as you have already figured out. I know many nice shops there, but I think it's against the policy of this website to tell names and addresses of them, so I wish you all the luck to find them by yourself. Sorry. Go to top

    This is very late, but did you try googling "cross stitch Paris" (or wherever)? When I was in Budapest a few months ago I wanted to find some needlepoint shops (there seems to be one in every single town) and I found them using Google. I haven't tried finding cross stitch there, but you never know .... Go to top
