Exciting new fabric shop opening in Islington

July 9, 2011

I’m soooo thrilled to hear that Ray Stitch, the gorgeous online haberdashery and fabric shop previously only of virtual existance, is opening up a real bricks and mortar shop! How exciting! And funnily enough I used to live about 2 minutes away from where the shop will be. Gah! If they’d opened 5 years ago I may never have moved.

The shop will be at 99 Essex Road, N1 2SJ. Angel is becoming quite the crafting mecca, what with the Make Lounge and Loop also just around the corner.

Which means I need no more of an excuse to go on a day trip ‘up north’ (I live south of the river now, so it counts as The North for me ;-) ) when Ray Stitch opens, currently scheduled for September. I’d better start saving up!

It’s exciting isn’t it!! I am very very far away, but coming down to London in Sept to watch some cricket, and am hoping to have time to pop over to Islington to visit the new shop. I’m looking forward to visiting the Make Lounge and Loop too. Like you say, time to start saving!
