New fabrics, new fair date and a photo of me!

My blogs are bit like buses, nothing for weeks and then 2 at once!!!

Just wanted to pop back in to tell you about a few things.  First and foremost, fabrics, (what else?!).  I have been buying some beautiful fabrics lately ad some of them have made it to the website.  I was lucky enough to buy up some bolts of new old stock fabrics that have been stored away since the owner retired from his fabric shop in the 1980's. 

There are some gorgeous barkcloths, cottons and a huge roll of moquette, which was the fabric used to upholster seats on trains and buses.













.

As well as these great fabrics I have found some smaller lengths of cottons and crepes suitable for dressmaking and quilting.

















Lots more fabrics to come soon so do keep watching the website!

The Jubilee themed Vintage and Handmade Fair at Chipping Sodbury was wonderful, as usual, and it was lovely to see so many of you there on that sunny Saturday.  





My next fair date will be a local one for me.  The Utterly Unique Vintage Fair will be held on Sunday 1st July at Castle Hill, Filleigh, near South Molton, Devon from 10am to 4pm.  A great day out for all the family with fashions and fabrics together with furniture, homewares and gardenalia as well as a display of Lady Arran's vintage wardrobe.  There will be classic cars and a glorious vintage tea room.  Do try and come if you can.



Finally, I would like to thank the lovely people at Homes and Antiques magazine for making me their VIP this month and for the lovely things they said about me. What an honour, I am truly flattered.

Loving the blog but you are causing me to think over many tricky things...firstly, why did I ditch my blonde crop and go brunette??
Secondly, I too need a major wardrobe sort out....can I be bothered ?? and thirdly, I need more fabric...
I shall continue perusing your fabby blog and the wardrobe will be tackled tomorrow.
