Welcome to PetitPoulailler!

I sew, collect, embroider, quilt, cook, and craft! I am the only daughter of an only daughter of an only daughter - going back seven generations. And every one of them was a craftswoman; every one, a collector.
As an antique collector and a quilter and a paper-smith - my interests are wonderfully diverse! When the fabric bug bites me, I create beautiful miniature and sampler quilts, classic handkerchiefs, purses, totes, sachets, and bags in beautiful reproduction and designer fabrics - you will find these in my Three French Hens shop - it is where I pursue that ever elusive Perfect Seam!
And for those times when I am not out estate sale hunting, sewing, or quilting, I adore playing and creating with my fantastic collection of antique and vintage papers, prints, and designs. I draw creative inspiration from a tremendous collection of original Victorian, Edwardian, Georgian and Regency engravings, prints, and chromolithographs as well as from a glorious stack of quilts and embroidery dating to the turn of the last century left to me by my mother and grandmother.
Everything is created, packed, and shipped from my smokeless, pet-friendly home here along the beautiful Jersey Shore!
