Edith Wharton, Fabric Designer?

did Edith Wharton design fabric for Shumacher depicting the fable Le Meunier, son fils and l'ane ? I have come across a beautiful linen tapestry with Edith Wharton listed as a credit.

Address of Pavillon Colombe Dear Madams, dear Sirs,

I would like to ask if you may give me the address of Edith Wharton's house in St. Brice sous forêt near by Paris, becaus I would like to visit it.
Or do you have some other information about the house, whether there is a museum etc.?

Thank you very much, I am a fascinated reader of Edith Wharton from Germany

Kind regards

The only information we have is that the house is on the rue Edith Wharton. It's a private residence, so as far as I know there is no museum there.

Query: Obtaining a copy of SUMMER (movie, 1981)

My daughter was in the TV movie "Summer" in 1981. I would like to obtain a copy of the movie for her, for her 36th birthday this October. The movie was filmed in 1990 - some of it in New Hampshire. Any idea where I can find a copy?
