I am so pleased to share with you the home of Alli Eagan, known as @francophiledallas on instagram. Alli creates a home of classic warmth full of timeless treasures and her beloved needlepoint. Much like Alli, this tour was the epitome of the Christmas spirit- gracious, inviting, and traditionally cozy.
Alli was kind enough to share some of her cherished sources and tips for a memorable holiday. From creating a beautiful centerpiece to making a table runner to last generations to doubling her oven to support her French culinary skills, Alli is full of ideas that will leave you inspired. Merci beaucoup, Alli!

Local needlepoint stores are the best source for canvases, threads, and expertise! Many of my ornaments are from Needle Arts in Metairie, Louisiana @needlenola and have been shopping there for almost 20 years. I buy many others from Needlepoint This here in Dallas @needlepoint_this and Chapel Hill Needlepoint in Chapel Hill, NC @chapelhillneedlepoint
