London calling, a bloggers weekend #londonsewsocial

Those of you following me on Instagram couldn't have missed it, the get together of 15 bloggers in London, the sequel to our Paris adventure last year. We chatted, laughed, walked around town and overcrowded the little London fabric shops with our presence.



So, where do sewing bloggers go when in London? First of all, we needed to find Liberty fabric. You can go to Liberty London on Regent Street or hit Shaukat (Old Brompton Road), they carry a fantastic amount of Liberty fabrics in their basement.
We also visited Simply fabrics (Atlantic Road) and Macculoch & Wallis (Poland Street). My personal favourite was just around the corner from Macculoch; the Cloth House on Berwick Street. I sure was tempted by all the beautiful blues they had in store.

the Cloth HouseWe talked about sewing, sewing and some more sewing but also learned things about eachother on a more personal note. Turns out we're all quite the coffee drinkers and the hunt for a decent cup in the morning wasn't taken lightly. And did you know there are people out there that don't care for the colour blue ;)
