I have read lots of good reviews about a new craft cafe, Sew Over It, in Clapham recently, but most of the articles I have seen didn’t show any photos of the inside. So I decided to have a look and perhaps have a slice of cake and tea. When we got there, the owner kindly allowed us to take some photos inside. There were two classes taking place that day, so I didn’t take any photos of the classroom area. Most of the tables were taken up so I couldn’t have my tea and cake, I guess it is a good excuse to come again next time and perhaps try out a class.
Inside the cafe was filled with trimmings, fabrics, and lots of sparkly buttons. It is definitely a place to go if you need to boost your sewing mojo. It also has a lovely vintage feel too, I’m so tempted to wear my 1950s dress and pearls to the cafe next time. The classes are interesting and I heard that there may be children’s after school sewing classes too (yes, I was eaves dropping again).
Here are few photos I took that day:
The pussy bow blouse class sound interesting.
A table full of buttons in champagne glasses and cake stands.
I like the idea of the Customising Tree. There also lots of trimmings and ribbons to buy there.
Yes, I must go home and just keep sewing, sewing, sewing……..
I was feeling a bit peckish after our short trip so we popped into The Old Post Office Bakery afterwards for a snack to take away.
The bread looks very rustic
A slice of Apricot Tart?
Have a lovely weekend everyone. I’m planning on doing some craft supplies shopping tomorrow.
