Shopping in Totnes

      No Comments on Shopping in Totnes

Today I went shopping in Totnes before heading back to Southampton tomorrow and as normal I headed round the plethora of charity shops. I also introduced my mother to Revival which is a complete Aladdin’s Cave, we may have spent some time stroking fur coats and marvelling at sequinned dresses. We managed to tear ourselves away from there in the end and reached my goal for the day which was Stones the fabric shop at the top of the high street.

From the charity shops I managed to get some fabric and notions:


Fabric bought at Save the Children in Totnes. A pale mint green crepey fabric and a greeny patterned Poly blend that was once a roller blind I think

And a Knitting Stitch Book

Stones Fabric: In stones I bought some lovely fabrics from their yardage and a few unknown fabrics from their remnants bin.

Stones Fabric

L-R Teal Crepe like Fabric, Flower print Viscose, Black Polka Dot Viscose, Blue woven ‘scarf’ material, White Bamboo Jersey.

I am so looking forward to making something out of these fabrics, it is so nice to go into a shop which has predominantly fashion fabrics and isn’t catering to just quilters.

I am particularly looking forward to using that flower fabric and if I have enough material I think the Teal one has to become a draped skirt.
