Swishing Salon

The doors open tomorrow at 10am for the annual textile pilgrimage - 'The Knitting and Stitching Show' at Alexander Palace, North London. It is a very insprational show with work by top textile practitioners, up and coming crafters, textile guilds. It's also a great place to source different materials, supplies, patterns, magazines...the list goes on (don't forget your cheque book!)
This year the show is on trend with a new section - 'The Swishing Salon'

Mrs Bears swap shop will be helping the swishing team from Sewing World and Bliss, making sure all the garments you bring in are carefully graded, you will be issued with a rashion book with coloured stamps according to the quality of your garments, then you can raid the rails and swap 'like for like' and walk away with a new wardrobe!

Meanwhile myself and the Fabrications' team will be on hand with a sewing machine sponsored by Brother, showing you some customising tips and tricks. I will also have a display of my 'Remember Me' service (in which you can bring me your clothes or textiles which hold sentimental value to be transformed into comforting furnishings for the home or gifts) and my new 'Rethink Rubbish' kits.
Sissy Rooney has made a special trip from Manchester to offer her 'Street style surgery'.

So what's stopping you?
All proceeds from the Swishing Salon
will be going to the premature baby charity Bliss.
The show is on Thursday to Sunday, 10am - 5.30pm.
