Whoop, whoop! On Saturday I took my first Pyjama Party sewing class at Significant Seams. The lesson covered taking body measurements and making fabric selections – which meant a trip to Walthamstow market to buy fabric!
Saeed Fabrics didn’t disappoint.
It was so nice to meet my students, all of whom are super-lovely. I think we’re going to end up with an awesome collection of pyjama bottoms.
To prepare for our outing, I decided to make a new map of the market, highlighting my favourite places to shop. When I say ‘I made’ I mean someone else made it for me, so a big thank you to Ian!
You can download the map here, perfect for printing out next time you visit the market. It includes a handy meeting point, should you be going with a group of friends. It doesn’t include every single shop and stall, just my favourites. But the really big news is… Drum roll… There’s a new fabric shop in Walthamstow!
I only discovered this place because our cab driver dropped us off outside. It had opened two days previously! The shop is down a tiny side street, but miss it and you’d miss out. (It’s marked number 6 on the map.) Look at this gorgeous paisley one of the students bought here…
So, there we are. New students, new shop. Anything new going on in your life?
NOTE There were several requests for me to add a list of blogger attendees to this post about the V&A outing. I think I’ve included everyone, but let me know if your blog needs adding.
