A Common Thread (Brodeuses)

I have just had a chance to watch "A Common Thread" (English title) or "Brodeuses" (French title) on DVD. It tells the story of a young, single pregnant woman taken in by an Armenian (?) woman who embroiderers for the Paris fashion trade. They use a rather interesting sewing machine, but also do some large-scale sewing, which I think is Tambour beading, that was fascinating to watch.

If you happen to see it in your local video shop, have a peep. I had to search to find it, but it was worth it.
