Hello friends, it's been a while! I've found it really hard to catch up on blogging and sewing since my recent visit to Cyprus, so I'm breaking myself back in with some good news for crafty folk in and around Leicester.
A few weekends back I went to visit my favourite fabric stall on the market, only to find out that the owner was winding it down in favour of a permanent shop just up the road, called Material Magic. I can't tell you how exciting this is for us locals, because there's a serious lack of choice when it comes to fabric shopping in Leicester. The two market stalls are excellent, but obviously not there every day, and the haberdasheries in the big chains (John Lewis, Fenwick, etc) are pricey and lack selection.
Anyway, Material Magic certainly didn't disappoint! It's a relatively small shop, but packed with a good variety of fabrics which are very reasonably priced.
Cottons of all weights for any project
Fancy fabrics for special occasions
Fun animal prints
Jersey in a range of solids and prints
Colourful linen for Spring time
Cotton lawn in brilliant florals
Of course, it would have been rude to leave empty handed, so I brought these adorable prints home!
Have you discovered any good local crafty shops recently?
