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 flash.net).
