Bath is famous for it's impressive Georgian architecture, Roman Baths and as home to Jane Austen. We were not disappointed with our visit and spent hours wandering around admiring The Crescent visiting the Abbey and admiring the art work in The Victoria Art Gallery. There was even time for a sneakily large piece of cake and a pot of Breakfast tea!
First stop was The Makery, a cute little sewing shop nestled down an alley in the middle of the city. I first became aware of The Makery through Mollie Makes magazine and, as well as the shop, they also have a separte premises where the majority of their workshops are held. Although small, the shop sells a good selection of fabric and other bits 'n' bats including stamps and thread. I purchased 2 fat quarters of fabric, a hair slide ready to be decorated (I think I'm going to use buttons), a magnetic bag clasp and a wooden bobbin purely because I liked it.
