Posted on 4 CommentsPosted in Review, Sewing

If you sew, you will almost certainly have heard of William Gee haberdashery; well certainly if you are in the UK. The family run business in London has been trading since 1906 and is certainly one of the biggest haberdasheries in the UK. With over 9000 products in stock, you are sure to find the […]

Mid year review – Yes I’m back!

Posted on 3 CommentsPosted in Sewing

OK, no apologies but its half way through 2018 (where has the time gone?) and once again my lack of blogging has been noticeable. I thought I would post a little mid year review, just so you don’t think I have abandoned you all. The trouble is finding time to blog as often as I […]
