I was catching up with some blog reading when I saw this on one of them (Lazy Daisy Jones)
I popped along to the website to find out more and this is what is was all about:
This year, it was on Saturday 17th October. I checked whether there were any participating shops nearby and there were, so I headed off to investigate. On my way there, I went over a rather high pedestrian bridge, which, in hindsight, wasn't the best plan as I don't have much of a head for heights.
Fabric Corner hasn't been open all that long and I kept going past it on my way to work and thinking I really must make the effort to go there. Sew Saturday gave me the perfect opportunity! The owner also has a material stall at the local inside market, but she said this shop became available and it was too good an opportunity to miss. There is space for workshops and a cafe next door too. Inside was an Aladdin's cave of goodies and on Sew Saturday, there was money off some designer Christmas materials and ribbons, and lots of other good deals to be had.
You knew that I would be buying, didn't you? I bought some designer Christmas fabric for bunting and other projects, a fat quarter pack with the colours I need for a current project and a piece of turquoise spotty fabric, also for a current project. As I spent a certain amount, I was given a rather nice shopper bag too. The shop was quite busy when I was there and I hope it was a successful day for them. I hope that Sew Saturday might be an annual event.
