Lets talk about Lauren

If you watched the Great British Sewing Bee you'll know all about Lauren, she was a brilliant contestant and she's just opened a haberdashery in Birmingham - Guthrie Ghani. The shop is beautiful, lovely products, huge windows and lots of space, I went on Friday night for drinks and nibbles before the big launch on Saturday (which was a massive success, there were queues to get in)

They have yarn:


And lovely fabric:


Pretty shop fittings:


You can even buy a copy of the Sewing Bee book (and I'm sure Lauren would sign it for you)


Next Thursday 9th May I will be there for my book launch, I'd love for you to come along, see the socks in the book and chat to me! You can buy a book on the night, I'll sign it if you want me to, much fun will be had by all!

I'm also teaching two workshops in the lovely workshop space upstairs:

Beginners Sock Workshop at Guthrie Ghani 14th May

Advanced Sock Workshop at Guthrie Ghani 2nd July

If you want to try knitting socks but you don't know where to start or you'd like to learn a few more sock knitting techniques, these workshops are for you.


  1. Birmingham just got WAY more appealing! :D

  2. To far away for me but I did love Lauren in the Sewing Bee. She seemed to be so lovely. I hope her beautiful shop is a roaring success.
