High End Habidashery Brought Memories Back

PamsDesigns-Honduran-sewing-JR2_3413

On a recent jaunt up to London with my daughter, we made a point of popping in to one very well known and extremely high end store well known for fabrics, yarns, habidashery, upholstery materials etc. etc.  We had always enjoyed looking at gorgeous materials when made into dresses, curtains, seat covers – anything requiring a fabric in fact.  Why neither of us have taken our  hobbies further is a mystery.  One of my sisters has always done a lot of sewing and knitting over the years and she used to visit the same store when she was first out at work and had a job handily just round the corner.  She used to watch goggle eyed whenever invited to sit in on any instore demonstrations.

I was very interested in looking at the store archive of sewing patterns – how designs have more or less gone full circle twice.  The price of patterns is enormous now though £18 for a child’s pinafore ensemble!

Sewing Machines

Sew this long length of knitting to the tea cosy to form four loops, a bit like a flower. These loops make the hen\'s nest. Ideal for keeping the teapot and boiled eggs warm too, children really enjoy them. Taking less than an hour to make they do make a lovely surprise on Good Friday and Easter Sunday when you present someone a hard boiled egg for their breakfast that still has a hen sitting on top of it.
