I defy anyone to go into The Brighton Sewing Centre on North rd and not find inspiration. Every nook and cranny is filled to the brim with glorious colour, glimmering threads and sparkling buttons. The overhaul this little, once dingy and out dated shop has seen in the last 18 months is immense! And it is almost unrecognisable as the place i took my 7 gauge knitting machine to be fixed 4 years ago. Sewing heaven. The lovely staff have encyclopedic knowledge of everything from sewing machines and quilting to free motion machine embroidery and pattern cutting... and teach an array of super exciting classes to run alongside all these activities! Well what are you waiting for?! As i mentioned in an earlier post, 2011 at M.A.P is all about Make.Do.Mend. Well look no further...My crafty little fingers are a tappin' and my brain instantly dizzy with an array of project ideas that there are just not enough hours in a day to get stuck into.
Pop in and have a peek... and see if you can leave empty handed. The pompoms are awesome!
ps. i am half way through a quilted waistcoat as we speak! you can catch photo updates of all my projects here and on my Tweets.
