My daughter and I used to love going to the local 'Sewing Machine' shop. Sadly it closed down earlier this year so we've had withdrawl symptoms!
I knew that The Wimbledon Sewing Machine Company had another shop in Tooting Bec for some time but since it's not quite on our door step we hadn't ventured there until now. And boy what an adventure we had...
We poked our noses round a corner and found a couple of ladies and a little girl sewing together. Such a lovely sight! We apologized for disturbing them and they invited us to join them. How amazing is that! What I didn't know is that the shop offers free classes every now and then and we'd just stumbled upon it. They very kindly showed us how to make this lovely little felt reindeer Christmas tree decoration! We got to take him home too!! Thank you ladies!!
