Hey Vincent, welcome to the world of blogging. I’ve been rather lax in my stitching for the last couple of years. I always say I’ll get back to it then get distracted by a romance book. {LOL} Glad to see you’re back up to speed and doing what you love best. I’ve put you in my official RSS feed list so I never miss a posting of your beautiful work.

Take Care,
Jan

Vincent,

I saw your post on Stitchin Fingers about shops in London. I can’t reply on that forum because my membership hasn’t been approved yet, so I’m posting my reply here instead.

Unfortunately needlework shops in London seem to be dying out. The only suggestions I can think of are the haberdashery departments in John Lewis and Liberty, both department stores in central London (Oxford Street area).

John Lewis
Oxford Street
London W1A 1EX
http://www.johnlewis.com

Liberty
Great Marlborough Street (just off Regent Street)
London W1B 5AH

http://www.liberty.co.uk

Liberty is worth visiting anyway because it is such a lovely shop.

Both the above also sell fabric but I think you would be better going to a fabric shop to look for silks and Chinese brocades. Fabric shops in the area include:

MacCulloch and Wallis (close to John Lewis mentioned above)
25-26 Dering Street
London, W1S 1AT

http://www.macculloch-wallis.co.uk

and some in Berwick Street (not far from Liberty mentioned above):

The Berwick Street Cloth Shop
14 Berwick Street
London, W1F 0PP

http://www.theberwickstreetclothshop.com/

(actually has 3 shops on Berwick Street – maybe contact them to check which is the best one for silks and brocades?)

Borovick Fabrics Ltd
16 Berwick Street
London W1F 0HP

http://www.borovickfabricsltd.co.uk/index.html

You would be able to get round to all these shops in half a day, although if you want to spend a lot of time looking at the goods and getting distracted by other things along the way, I’d allow a whole day.

Hope your trip goes well. I did a one-day course on Blackwork at the RSN earlier this year and enjoyed it very much – the location is lovely! Hampton Court Palace itself is also well worth visiting.

Thank you! I learned it on my own. I swear, my eyes felt like they were bleeding! lol. I had photos of whiteworks on pineapple fiber clothes, undid some embroideries (I was lucky to have an old Barong), made the patterns and embroidered the fabrics. trial-and-error method.
