There is a new quilt shop in town. It is situated in Corfield Hall at the back of the church at the end of Hammet Street and is one of a few select departments within. Do go and visit Pam as she is working hard to get her business up and running. A web site is in the process of being constructed but if you google gingham buttons handmade'ns then you should find it. If you plan a visit then Pam's number is 01823 350034 / 07912 734658
Pam is selling Moda fabric, lots of jelly rolls, layer cakes charm packs as well as bolts of fabric. More is on order and she is waiting for the books to arrive. You can also sell your work through the shop, the details you would have to discuss with Pam. If you are at a loose end on a Thursday evening then you can go in and sit in with the craft sessions and have a cup of coffee.
Pam is also selling work by other crafts persons and if you have anything to sell then you can get the details from the shop. These little delights are calorie free and will even make your purse lighter should you buy one!!
Should you require some light refreshment then there is a great cafe at the back of the hall.
For you armchair visitors this is The Parish Church of St. Mary Magdalene. It is situated in the centre of the town at the end of Hammet Street.
You cricket wives who sew whilst the menfolk watch the innings your ears will prick up when Somerset County Cricket Ground is mentioned. The cricket ground is near to the church and when the ball goes up in the air you will see this church tower. You will know then that I am not too far away. There are several churches in the vicinity.
It is a most magnificent church to look at and if you come and visit, deposit the menfolk at the cricket, give me a shout and I will join you for a cream tea.
Just to let you know that "Gleanings" has been featured on Karen Griska's Selvage blog and can also be seen at the on-line quilt museum under selvage quilts. I am thrilled and truly honoured. Thank you Karen.
