I am going away for 2 weeks! The Fabrications renovations have got to a stage now where I can have a holiday, re charge my batteries ready to get stuck into finishing, painting and fixtures and fittings and re stocking the shop. The plan is to re open mid October after the Knitting + Stitching show in Ally Pally, where I have put together a new area at the show called 'The Upcycling Academy'.
It has been an exciting journey, working with the architects Delvendahl Martin, Fiona Sail + Sons (contractor) and her team of hard working trades people and seeing an idea that was planned on paper 4 years ago become reality.
Standing in this new space I am now also appreciating the architects vision in transforming the little yard out back that wasn't really being used into this inspirational, light and functional space.
I am looking forward to all the workshops, events, happenings, talks, collaborations, creativity and positivity that the space is going to generate! See you in October! Or at the official launch party next year!
