I've seen a book on embroidering religious vestments at the Houston library.  I
believe it was on English embroidery, rather than French.  I take it you are
looking specifically for French designs, any time period?  Where are you
located?  I have some contacts in the Cajun French Catholic community that might
be able to help if I have a better idea exactly what you're looking for.  Email
me directly (charlene at
