Emma's Fabric Studio Open Day
I cannot believe that nine months have passed since Emma's Fabric Studio's first Open Day back in October 2013! Where has that time gone?!?!
As expected, the second Open Day at Tithe Barn in Lenham, Kent did not disappoint as my photos will confirm! Emma and her fabulous Team "WILL WORK FOR CAKE" did a fantastic job of getting everything just so and making the barn look as beautiful as it did.
I went along with my friends Mary and Mags and after posing for photos with the yarn bombed vehicle that stood in pride of place in the barn, we had delicious refreshments of cake and tea and a good look around at all of the gorgeous fabrics/yarn and haberdashery goodies for sale. I took lots of pictures of the car from all angles as it looked amazing!
I haven't seen Emma since our Christmas get together and ashamedly haven't been keeping myself up to date with her latest fabric ranges (I do follow Emma's Fabric Studio on Facebook mind!) There were masses of loveliness to choose from and trust me if she had credit card facilities available, I would have spent a small fortune! I was rather restrained this time around and purchased some Essex Linen and some new Christmas fabrics that I just simply could not resist! I do have a thing for Nordic red & white at Christmas so these particular lovelies really appealed to me. I have no idea what I will use them for but just simply had to have them!
Along with the beautiful Harris sewing machine that you may recall from the last Open Day, there was beautiful vintage Singer sewing machine on display that I was drooling over. I would SO love to fill my house with vintage machines! Where I would put them all I have no idea but I would still like to have them!
There was some beautiful Hoop Embroidery on display and my particular favourite was this one!
I was also rather taken with the yarn/wool area display and thought this looked fabulous, so bright and cheery!
Tithe Barn itself is stunning and the grounds it is located in are just perfectly English. It was a glorious day and although we had one huge downpour, it didn't affect us.
