Inspiración, Inspiration

Wednesday of…/Miércoles de…

Fabric and haberdashery shops

Almacenes de telas

Today I would like to remark about those marvellous places where one can be immerse for hours -even with a 3 year old wanting to go to the toilet every 5 minutes-. To me, fabric shops are an amazing source of inspiration and I mean, I know you can buy on-line, but nothing compared with the sensation of touching and see the colours in person.

Among my favourites are this one in Devon, this one near Birmingham -owned by the lovely Lauren who was second place on the British sewing bee Tv contest- and a little bit more local to me, this one in Leigh on sea, and lately I can’t stop myself  going to this one, also en Leigh on sea,  because the nice lady who owns it carry the most amazing stock of buttons and vintage zips.

Do you preffer to buy online or go to the shop?

Hoy quiero escribir acerca de estos lugares maravillosos donde puedo gastar horas y horas -inclusive con miss VI queriendo ir al baño cada 5 minutos- Las tiendas que venden telas son lugares repletos de inspiración, y, aunque hoy en dia se pueda comprar en linea, no existe nada como tocar y ver el color/textura de las telas en persona. Entre mis tiendas favoritas están esta localizada en Devon, esta cerca a Birminham. Un poco mas cerca esta en Leigh on sea; y últimamente no salgo de esta, porque tiene un stock de botones y cremalleras que ustedes no se imaginan, de lujo!.

Ustedes prefieren comprar en linea o ir a la tienda?

  1. I think always going to a shop full of things you love is going to be a winner. But having said that shopping on line does have its benefits . Such as it offers 24 hour access and saves time and money .
