Zoe prepared the lovely map underneath to guide us through the day and Claire was kind enough to print enough copies for everyone. We were divided into 2 groups, as most shops are way too small for a large group. And led by Stevie, my group went along.The tour involved 3 fabric shops, including the eye-watering Ditto Fabrics, and a street market, where we lusted after old and used haberdashery. The tour finished at the pub, where food, drink and much merriness was in store.
After much needed food we shared our buys.
And then we had fun swapping fabric!
The bottom right pile is what I swapped for a gorgeous blue gingham, possible destined to be a wiggle type dress, and a oh-so-soft stripy fabric. I also bought some fabric, but I'll share that in another post as this one is already going long.
What a fantastic day, we need to do this more often!
