Comments: Beautiful shop that is a joy to wander around. I only had ten minutes to spare as I was moving but couldn't resist going in when I passed by. The staff were really friendly and the fabric was gorgeous. They have some really unusual kits as well as the more standard stuff. Great if you're looking for something that really catches the eye.
