But what really drew me to Wallingford was an invitation to Village fabrics and I was not disappointed. This has got to be heaven for any Patchwork and Quilting enthusiast, I was taken on a guided tour of the shop, and yes it is that big.
We started with the moda range, over 150 different bolts, including some jelly rolls, charm packs and new layered cake. Next we moved to the Japanese fabric area a favourite of mine, thought the marble colours to the strips and checks, passed the block colours to the 120 batik bolts which lead to the Christmas room. A whole room dedicated to Christmas fabrics, samples and ideas. At the back of the shop felts, fleece, wadding and sheers were on offer and beyond that a tailor made class room with classes at £22 for the day.
