Olympia 2017

Mum and I went to Olympia again this year, we went by coach, because of an accident on A13 it took 5hrs to get there, luckily for us we took a packed lunch, the ladies sitting next to  us weren’t as fortunate. The coach driver allowed us to stay until closing so we only missed out on about 30 minutes shopping.

This is just a quick post to show off my new stash.

From Bombay fabrics I bought this fabric

They are both clear cut from Fabric Freedom, I have an idea for a dress in the purple and probably a halter neck from the pink/orange.

from Fabric Galore

From Girl Charlee

This is a beautiful Cotton Rayon Spandex blend, I had read about Girl Charlee in various blogs and I must admit I had thought of them as being a bit expensive, some of their fabric is expensive but this was £5 a meter (at show) they were friendly and very helpful.

it feels like a cotton Lawn, it has that silky feel to it, I already have this in red but I’m too scared to cut in to it, this is going to be my test version.

These three are all jersey fabric and to be honest if I hadn’t already fallen in love with the last two, I wouldn’t have bought anything from their stall. They seemed more interested in serving their regular customers, and even when I went back later on, with no other customers it was a struggle to get served.

I also bought two more patterns from Sewoverit

Unlike other years I have definite ideas about what I want to make with the fabric I bought.
