Buying “locally”

I am sure this is not news for you, but just in case that you have missed it, Katy Jones from I’m a Ginger Monkey is doing a tour around UK fabric shops! Sounds fun doesn’t it?

More than just a tour, this is a fantastic crusade to bring greater awareness of some of the fabric retailers in this country. The craft boom has certainly hit Britain and the rest of Europe and we all can all enjoy not only of great UK/European magazines, blogs, clubs, classes, but also new places to get all our materials.

Today The Fabric Shop is being featured in Katy’s blog! I am over the moon as I am a huge fan of her blog and her work that she shares with us on her blog and at Fat Quaterly. Have a look at her blog and travel the UK with her from shop to shop. We are offering a little something to Katy’s readers, hope you like it.

    Thank you Ruth! As I said to Katy, it is a very exciting time for people that sew or want to sew, there are so many choices of designs, techniques, places teaching crafts, etc. I do want to be part of this boom and your support is a great help :)
