Thanks so much for that yippppeee I have asked for the Bolero one. Do you think it will be hard?

I love the charity shops always a good place to pick up vintage patterns for pennies.

Glad you liked it! Hm, I never thought about looking for vintage patterns in a charity shop. Good idea. ! Ah, I just noticed your in England! I bet they have more there than here....

That bolero pattern is super. That was my 2nd choice. (hm, maybe I could get my husband to request that one on his email?) Hey! nobody gonna order that wedding dress pattern???

Yes the charity shops over here are great. There is one in particular for the Samaritans which I go to at least twice a week. She has wool at 20pence a ball no matter what it is. I give her more than the 20p because its worth more and I like to support them.
They also have fabric (which I hoard) and its ridiculous how cheap it is.

There are chairty shops all over the place here and a great shopping trip and a rummage

You dont fancy doing the wedding dress?????


I had the bolero its on my to do list

Hi Sharon! I used to go to charity shops in London when I went over each year (I used to live there ages ago boo hoo and I miss it soooooo) what is the name of those popular ones all over the place... I can't remember now. hmmmm, I have it written down somewhere. Now I know I've been away from England for too long.

Hi there possibly oxfam?

There are so many charities now that have shops. Infact just about all of the big charities have them.

You like London then? If you remember post it so I know which one it was ok. You got me thinking now and its in my head. All the charity shop names going round my head
