Yarn, Yorkshire and All Manner of Wonderful Things!

Sunday Sevens!

We began the week with a trip to Harrogate. In particular here.

Now I really really wanted to go here as I knew they stocked some fabric which I NEEDED. Oh my what a wonderful shop, absolutely stocked to the rafters on two floors with so much lovely, lovely fabric.

Michael Miller Dawn fairies fabric. I am going to try to make a dress for Miss F next year. But I also needed this fabric.

Which will be something for Ms J, maybe for Christmas if I get my skates on. Details of the shop here They do mail order but I wanted to see the fabric for myself before buying. It is good quality. And if that wasn’t enough opposite this shop was a wool shop and just up the street a sewing machine shop, and two tearooms, and street parking. Bliss!

And so to Saturday when we had to go to York, I didn’t have long here, but there was time to go the Viking Loom, a favourite sewing shop, where I picked up a couple of Christmas presents and some bits and bobs, as you do. But a bit of time to take some pictures to share.
