Ray Stitch

I’ve been meaning to post this all week but I guess better late than never. Before we went to see the K Fassett exhibit last Saturday we checked out a sewing store called Ray Stitich that I’ve been meaning to check out. It’s north London in the Islington area. I’m a bit annoyed because its very close to the knitting store Loop that I had taken mom to but I didn’t realise it was so close, oh well…

It’s quite a funky feeling store. You can get a nice coffee and pastry. John was able to get a nice stool by the window to read and sip a cafe whilst I looked around. They were having a great looking pattern cutting class downstairs as well which I’ve now signed up for at the end of September. Also, in October I’ve signed up for an embroidering class with the wonderful designer Aneela Hoey. I’m very excited. I think I’ll get her to sign one of my quilts made from her fabric. Her blog has some lovely ideas. Check it out here. Lots of things to look forward to in the fall now! I’ll need that after another amazing summer cottaging at Georgian Bay!

At Ray Stitch I couldn’t resist a few things. This adorable Seashore dress from Oliver & S. I think Lady Fia needs one for collecting pebbles on the Jersey Beach this summer…

I also got this lovely cotton/linen blend for some new tunics…

Purchases came in a chic black bag with green tissue paper and Ray Stitch sticker. I’m a sucker for nice packaging…

I saw this apple fabric and couldn’t resist. I couldn’t decide between these colour ways so of course got both…

Some lovely sale fabric as well. I think the red will go nicely with the apples for a little girl’s dress…

I also love these pinks for the back of an Oliver & S quilt I’ve done the top for, I’ll share later. I have some of the Paris Map fabric in browns and turquoise but I love this pale pink option. The pink Flea Market Fancy fabric was also on sale…

John and I are in Cardiff this weekend for the Slalom World Cup race. It’s actually sunny so not too bad to be here. He’s doing some media work for them and I’m “helping”.
