2 quay street

While we were in Cornwall recently we visited a little town called Lostwithiel, we often stop as we are passing through but since our last visit this lovely fabric and knitting shop has opened up.

It is called '2 quay street' as this is where it's found, down near the river.

As well as selling a lovely range of fabrics, sewing notions and wool they also hold workshops....if only I lived closer :)

I bought the pre cut squares by Riley & Blake Designs and also a piece of beautiful organic plain fabric for the backing of the quilt I will make with the squares.

The two ladies who run the shop each have their own websites:
www.vintagesewandsew.com and www.lancasterandcornish.co.uk

Both are worth a visit and of course if you find yourself down in Cornwall just pop into their delightful shop!

Hi Lindsey, The fabrics are all so cute and I know you will make great use of them :) Happy anniversary to you (a little late). Your photos of Cornwall are beautiful ~ such a pretty place by the water.

Just a little something from Judy said...

I appreciate the pictures of Cornwall, as I often wished to visit the quaint, historic city that it is. I like the ones of the water and think you two must have had so much fun spending time there.

As for the new fabric pieces you found in that cute shop, I look forward to seeing what fine pieces you create out of them.

Hope you had a special time with your family.
