Visit to Sew Simple, Taverham, Norfolk

The second shopping outing was to my old favourites – Sew Simple in Taverham. I have visited before so knew what to expect. A veritable feast for anyone interested in sewing, knitting, crafting! Firstly I browsed around a book store which is in another part of the complex and was delighted to find “Carefree Quilts” book at a very competitive price!

The book is filled with inspirational ideas for quick and easy quilting using traditional block designs – but with a more carefree, relaxed attitude to accuracy. I shall certainly be exploring some of the projects in the book.

After a restorative coffee and cake I strolled around the large sewing area, checking out all the fabrics, magazines, project ideas before finally making my selection. I bought the last of a roll of stretch cotton fabric with a very BOLD floral pattern with which I plan to make into a sleeveless shift dress.

I will use that “old faithful” Prima dress pattern so once completed the dress will be known as no.46!
