Six Sewists Shopping in Birmingham

This was my first visit to Birmingham and what a great one. You really can’t go wrong when meeting up with wonderful ladies to chat and shop, no matter where it might be. After meeting at the station we made our way to the city center and this beautiful church.

St. Martin's Church, 1873

But this is what we came to visit: The World Famous Rag Market. A massive market full of hundreds of stalls? Yes, please.

We browsed first and took mental notes of fabrics and prices. Once we finished walking around the whole place we took action: shop, shop, shop.

Let the shopping commence...

Pretty pretty trims

Rolls, rolls and more rolls

Trims, trims and more trims

Here’s what I came home with (I obviously had a case of the blue hues):

Not only did I find great fabrics, I came home with two Scruffy Badger originals!

I see a scarf trimmed with pom poms in my future

I had a great time! Thanks to Winnie and Debbie for organizing a great meet up. Looking forward to next time already.

Now…off to organize all this stuff.

  1. Wow, seems like a great day out! Shame I didn’t know about it or else I’d have joined you as it’s not that far from Leicester! I can’t wait to go though (maybe after payday)! Loving the fabrics you bought!


  2. It was great to meet you. I enjoyed reading your write up. Your fabrics look fabulous and I am kicking myself for not buying more trim especially the pompom one! Oh well, I will just have to go back!


  3. Yay for a lovely day and many treasures brought home. Nice to meet you too. I’ve got the Sorbetto pattern printed out, now to work out what size I should cut it to!


I'd love to hear from you
