U K MEMBERS PLEASE CONTACT ME

Sooz | Posted in Fitting on

ARE THERE ANY U.K. MEMBERS OUT THERE?

PLEASE LOOK AT MY POSTING ON COMPUTERISED PATTERNMAKING IF YOU CAN.

I have had some great feedback from USA members and I would like to hear from sewers closer to home.

I am trying also to find courses (prefereably in Devon or the South West) for ladies’ tailoring and a good intermediate sewing class for the lady who is helping me part-time

      I am new to the forums.  I have been quilting and sewing home dec for a while and am beginning to venture out into fashion sewing.  But my reason for this reply is that I am traveling to England this summer with my son for soccer.  We are from the USA and I am very excited to be able to visit some fabric shops in England.  We will be in London and are staying in the villages of Eynsford and Farningham.  We will also travel to Belgium on a day trip.  Do you know of any shops that I should visit while I am there?  I have never been to Europe and any information would be greatly appreciated.

       

      Sincerely,

      Kathleen

        I live in the UK and there are many fabric shops here.  The best one is called FabricLand and they have a webside,  http://www.fabricland.co.uk and you will be able to see the nearest store to where you will be staying.  Their prices are the best, and they have a large selection of different types of material.   You can see the material patterns and types on the net.  Good luck and have a great time.

    Hi Sooz - I'm in the Uk - Nottingham. As you said in the computerised patternmaking thread, sewing seems to be a dying art here... though there seem to be tons of university courses doing 'fashion' - so why are so few interested in actual construction?
