We have had a few questions about how to use our new online store when shopping from the US, or outside of the UK and Europe.
Unfortunately the process isn’t completely automated but we are working on this, and do hope to make it fully automated in the near future. Until then if you are ordering from outside of the UK and Europe please email the items you would like to order directly to
and the lovely girls who handle the online
ordering will process your order.

This will probably be the saddest blog we will ever write.
It is a tribute to our dear friend and maker of the finest photographs Cabbages & Roses has ever published.
Her name was Lucinda Symons, she had two dogs, and a year ago she had a husband.
During that year she lost her beloved Brian and one of her dogs, and this week we lost her.
Here are our favourite photographs that she took, all our shoots were joyous, good humoured and beautiful.
Lucinda – thank you.

During our extraordinary trip to America last month, Kate and I met one of those people, who on meeting there was an instant connection.
The person in question was Kaari Meng someone who’s work I had admired for a long time, not least because I get emails weekly from Amazon telling me that the people who bought our book HOME MADE VINTAGE also bought FRENCH GENERAL, and it was thus that we became competitors without even having met.
She was chic and cool and her area of our shared exhibition was effortlessly beautiful. Ours – a little crowded, a bit muddly and hastily put together. When we met, not being one to hold back, I told her that she had been a thorn in my creative side ever since commencing work with MODA United Notions, as quite a few things that I had wanted to do, had already been done by FRENCH GENERAL! All those perfect stripes, the beautiful ribbons on wooden reels the heavenly French fabric…… She wrote a dear blog piece about our meeting on FRENCH GENERAL BLOGwhich exactly mirrors my thoughts! Have a look. The exhibition was beautifully organised by MODA – a three day extravaganza where Cheryl and Lissa made us feel as if we were an established part of the MODA family, and not the inexperienced ‘new girls’ that we were. Our range of fabrics designed especially for MODA,will be available from September this year.
