WE ARE OFTEN ASKED WHERE THE NAME MÂCONNAIS COMES FROM.  ANYONE FAMILIAR WITH THE NAME, KNOW IT MOSTLY AS A WINE REGION IN FRANCE.  MOST OFTEN THE REGION IS SYNONYMOUS FOR THE TOWN OF MÂCON, WHERE A NUMBER OF BEAUTIFUL WINES ARE PRODUCED.  

HOWEVER, MÂCONNAIS IS ALSO A MOUNTAIN RANGE IN THE BURGUNDY REGION OF FRANCE, AND WHAT MOST DO NOT KNOW IS THAT THE EARLIEST KNOWN SEWING NEEDLES WERE DISCOVERED THERE.  THE NEEDLES ARE THOUGHT TO HAVE BELONGED TO THE SOLUTREAN PEOPLE, DATING BACK TO 22,000 BC.    

NEEDLESS TO SAY, WE ARE ALL CONNECTED TO MÂCONNAIS, AND THIS IS WHY WE CHOSE TO USE IT.
