"Cant wait to see you Saturday, bought loads of fabric, don't know what i'm doing with it....." I add yet to that statement because I know from whom that excited message came and how brilliantly all of that impulsively bought fabric will be transformed into garments exquisite!!!
A visit to my most favourite fabric shopping heaven has that effect on all of us. Its impossible to go there and a) not get over excited and b) not come away loaded with GORGEOUS! fabrics of all description, mind toiling all the way home transforming them into the most amazing items of fashion.
Where? Where? I hear you panting - None other than a secret know only to us sewers! Goldhawk Road, Shepherds Bush, a short walk away from Shepherds Bush Station and a few steps from Shepherds Bush Market if you are a market addict like me and even better Goldhawk Road Station Hammersmith and City Line out of the station and straight into your first fabric shop. Do Resist the urge to buy everything in the first shop you walk into as there is a whole street full of them all eager to take your cash in exchange for a treasure trove of beautiful, fabulous fabric!
On your return home you book yourself into The Greenwich Sewing Club where help awaits to feed you Sewing Addiction.
What you waiting for.... Chop, Chop!
Oh! and by the way this fabric heaven is under threat by their local council and a bunch of greedy developers ..... !! Sign their petition when you're next there.
