De Fil en Aiguille / Thread in the needle

This morning at the Maison de  la Presse, St Antonin, Marie Louise Garrigues-Alies 's autobiography will be on sale. Born in 1912 and living in the maison de retraite since she was 90. Marie Louise tells her tale with humour and verve. From  1930  her father and brother in law  had the cafe in the Halle for 'donkey's years' She married Raymomd  and set herself up as an artisan dressmaker and spent 50 years in the fashion trade. She had help to pull the book into shape by Chantal Sentihes.
Well done Marie Louise.
