Stitchy heaven in Islington

I discovered the very delightful 'Raystitch' this week. This perfect 'old fashioned yet contemporary' haberdashery shop is stuffed full of delights - patterns, buttons, fabrics, ribbons and braids cover every inch - nestles in the heart of Islington and announces itself with three deck chairs parked up by its window. The ground level shop is a joy and downstairs there is a well appointed workshop area where they run regular sewing classes.

I was there to meet and greet and help promote my course at Les Soeurs Anglaises (August 18th - 24th) along with some of the other tutors and the sisters who set up LSA.
Met some lovely ladies, consumed some deliciously wicked (or should that be wickedly delicious cake?) and chatted patchwork and craft for a couple of hours.

Patterns galore
Colourful embellishments
Busy chatting
Bundles of ribbons
Claire Wellesley Smith's beautiful hand dyed threads
and stitched panels
Buttons a plenty
