Welcome to Canevas Folies

It‘s been more than 10 years now and it’s always with the same pleasure, that in our “embroidery workshop” we welcome customers looking for embroidery patterns, tapestries, rare and original threads, in short all that is necessary to the realization of personalized works.
We welcomed and accompanied the first stitches of many beginners. We have seen them progress, carry out more and more elaborate work and some of them continue to come to embroider regularly with us, in doing so forming a very nice small community.
Following the varied demands of our regular customers, over time we have tried, with great pleasure, to explore new techniques and I think we can now offer to everybody a large palette of embroidery.
