|Bolts of fabric-Ready to be transformed|
My mum was a fashion designer and dress maker when I was a child so much of my formative life was spent in tiny back street fabric shops, looking at jewelled buttons and bolts of brightly coloured silks and lace.

Ive never lost my love of being in these places. To me they buzz with a sort of creative excitement. All you need to make a fabulous project is right there at your fingertips.

If you find a really good haberdashery not only will they have fabric, buttons and bows but a hundred things you never knew you needed but now seem impossible to leave.
