millie moon



On Monday I had to go into Wells, my nearest town (although it is actually a city - the smallest city) to go to the bank, visit my printers etc. Whilst I was there I popped into the very lovely millie moon. I used to visit their other shop in Frome but now I no longer teach, I very rarely get over there, so it is lovely to now have a shop over here in Wells.




It has been open since the beginning of October and although I can't even sew, I have been tempted through the doors each time I visit.




I seem to see the lovely Rachel who I have known since visiting Frome - she is always lovely and smiley and very helpful.




There is always a lovely tactile display of buttons,



trimmings,




fabric and



finally ribbon - oh how I love the ribbons - I could spend a small fortune.



I can't tell you what I bought as they were Christmas presents but will share with you their website and sewing school.


They also have a blog you can follow.


All I need now is a little time to learn to sew!

Ohhh it looks amazing!!! Had a quick peak at their website, sadly not as well stocked as their shop :(

You really should have a go at sewing! You'd be amazed at how easy it is to do and how addictive it is!

I am getting my daughter a sewing machine for Christmas so am hoping if I have a quiet moment, to slope off up to her room and have a play!!

You should :D My mum got me my sewing machine and I love it :D I'm still getting the hang of it in all honesty, I prefer hand stitching stuff.

I'm a real sucker for ribbon and buttons. I know I'd spend all day in Millie Moon given half a chance :) x

All those buttons and ribbons! It is like heaven. Why are all the pretty shops in the smaller places I live in the middle of a huge city and we have nothing like this.
