Buying fabric here is not.
|Fabricland: Not Magical|
Here, on the other hand, is where fabric goes when it has been very, very good indeed.
|Liberty of London: Magical|
Now, I must be honest and admit that I have never set foot in Liberty's. This is probably a good thing as I imagine I could spend an awful lot of money there. Small niggles like cash flow (and 6,000 miles of distance) aside, who wouldn't want to shop there? The selection is amazing, the patterns exquisite, the displays imaginative and attractive.I have no idea what their staff are like but I imagine them to be kindly and helpful ladies of a certain age who know all there is to know about dashing haber.
|I'll take it all!|
|See how fascinating button displays can be?|
|I don't know what I would do with a lot of turquoise feathers, but I'm willing to take that risk|
And when you get bored of browsing yards and yards of tana lawn, varuna wool, vogue patterns, bias binding and tapestry kits....you can always go and buy a zebra's head.
|What every home needs: a zebra to hang your coat on|
All this drooling over Liberty reminds me of the fantastic giveaway the lovely Handmade Jane has on offer. Post a comment here and get the chance to win a copy of Sew Serendipity and/or five fat quarters of Liberty quilting cotton.
|Aren't they lovely? (and isn't she generous?)|
