Guthrie and Ghani: Snapshots

Some snapshots from a lovely day spent chez Guthrie & Ghani haberdashery in Birmingham last month when I was there to teach a Miette skirt sewing workshop. The students were great fun and it was such an amazing venue in which to get crafty. It was wonderful to catch up face-to-face with Lauren and her lovely hubs Ayaz, seen here modelling a tie he is sewing himself! It was also the first chance I had to have a proper look around the shop. The last time I was there the place was so crowded and I was so busy at the cutting table that I didn't actually have the opportunity to see what was in the shop. It is soooooo amazing, you guys! So pretty and light and spacious yet jam packed full with sewing and knitting goodness. Have you been there yet?

In other news, my next workshop is Learn to Sew: Tilly's Bow Belt at the Village Haberdashery in North London on Monday 8th July at 6.30 - 9.30pm. There are still spaces available so if you're an absolute beginner and want to get to grips with your sewing machine, make a cute bow belt and have a fun evening, come along!
