I recently had to go to the big city for work, and right near the carpark was the shopping mecca for fabric lovers - Mandors of Glasgow. It is such a novelty for me to actually see and touch real fabric as I live in a rural part of Scotland and rarely get to step inside an actual fabric shop. I'm more familiar with online shopping.
So here is what I was able to buy in the flesh:
The other "in the flesh" moment was meeting the fabric-savvy Hazel from Disaster in a Dress blog. I've been reading her blog for a while and now I have actually met her in real life! Yay! And boy does she know her way around a fabric shop. I don't think there's anything she doesn't know about fabric.
A great bonus for me on an otherwise worrying work day.
