Well, here we are, back from a gloriously sunny Brittany in France. I sat on lots of beaches, and we ate lots of French food, and generally relaxed. So now I am back I am rearing to go, tidy up, sort stuff out and get ready for the schools to go back and for my teaching schedule to begin.
I stitched in France, and brought a few magazines, but where we were was not ‘patchwork central’! I did however see this lovely floor in a restraunt that made me think of patchwork.
I was however very close to a great patchwork shop in the UK each time we drove in and out of Portsmouth for the ferry. We drove right by Chichester which is where Eternalmaker has their shop. BUT, they have just moved, and what was good before, is just amazing now:
The new address is: 41, Terminus Road, Chichester, PO19 8TX.
Check out the website , but if you can, visit the shop. They do lovely buttons and fabrics, and they have a School House coming up in October, where you can try out lots of different classes over the weekend. It is such fun! But I have not yet set foot in the new shop, due to ferry times, it was closed! (Anna let me use her picture from the blog to show you here.)
And as if to compensate for the lack of patchwork shops on my visits to France this summer, I will be seeing plenty when I go to Houston in October! I am visiting for Market and Festival, so I will definitely have my fill then. Are any of you going?
