Cross stitch kit plaids to embroider

The Chambord plaid project has almost become a myth! I got the idea in 2007 for my book Maison Sajou Point de Croix (published in 2007), as I explained : “like all seasoned embroiderers, I have drawers full of linen scraps and embroidery floss. This project was born from the wish to use up all these scraps and assemble them in a sort of masterpiece...” When the book was published it was a huge success, then, on the Sajou site, more and more demands arrived from clients who didn’t have enough linen scraps or embroidery floss but who desperately wanted to embark on this project. That is how we put together the complete kit for this Chambord plaid. We have sold hundreds all over the world. This project created a stream of amusing exchanges with photos and messages giving us news on the progress of the plaids, comments and messages of encouragement… After a while we took this project off our catalogue, thinking it had done its time. However, when we opened our store in Paris, we put two Chambord plaids in the shop front and again were inundated with requests. Most of the motifs come from my vintage archives, sometimes simplified, sometimes enlargened. The large majority come from designs intended for crochet.
