There’s a nice little shop round the corner from me called Ray Stitch. Now, until recently, I had considered this a shop that I had almost no use for, apart from that they sell awesome brownies.
After I started sewing on name tapes, I realised that what I could really use is a thimble. So I bought one from here, along with a load of black, navy, grey and white thread.
I think they do classes and people who make quilts like this shop (I am never going to make quilts). The next thing I may have to learn is how to take up trousers (we are short legged in my family) – however, this may be a step too far for me.
