Sew Up North Update – Fabricate
It’s time for another Sew Up North sponsor update. We’ve had some incredible prizes so far I think (check here for the full list) but we aren’t finished yet!
I do an awful lot of my fabric shopping online, Don’t we all?! But it’s great when a good, local(to becca) bricks and mortar shop where I can go and stroke the fabric. I think a lack of these types of shops in the past has been one of the main things that stopped me being passionate about sewing earlier in life.
Becca was thrilled to hear about Fabricate opening in Roberttown, a whole 5 minutes from her mum’s house…. wish I had Sewing Shops round me!!! Fabricate is a small but perfectly formed shop housing a beautiful collection of fabrics, everything from pretty cottons through organic and Art Gallery jerseys to denims and viscose. There are also lots of tempting haberdashery items such as Merchant and Mills goodies, patterns by the likes of Tilly and the Buttons and Sew Over It and kits by Clothkits. And for good measure, they run a wide range of workshops on site in their bright, lovely studio (there was one running when Becca called in today and she was distinctly jealous!)
They also stock the fab Oh Sew Quaint pattern weights and Phillipa has very kindly donated a set of the macarons to our raffle prize. Yay!!!
Obviously that will require me or Becca not to pinch them before then….. If you want more detail on them, I’ve reviewed the similar Fondant Fancies version earlier this year….yeah I’m one lucky so and so!! They would compliment my Fondant Fancies!!
We’ve also got some postcards with a discount code on for the goody bags, so you could enjoy 15% off in the shop – well worth the trip. And if you’re like Becca and her Daughter Katie, you could always pop into Ikea for lunch afterwards! Well why not, I love Swedish Meatballs!! The Food of course….not something else Hahahaha!
Thank you Philippa, you’re awesome!
