The bold Janet took the bull by the horns, so to speak, and contacted Peg to ask if she had a bricks and mortar shop or was it only online. The latter is the case but Peg said if we were in the area, to arrange a meet.
And that is how our first Tuesday came to involve a nice drive up the coast to Ipswich - they certainly don't call it New England for nothing. Eventually we drove through Plymouth, Barnstaple & Chatham too, but not all on the same day!
Our ever patient husbands were more than happy to take us on our fabric jaunt, they certainly know how to keep us quiet.
Where Peg lives is this beautiful coastal hamlet before you get to Ipswich town itself - we were beyond excited at the prospect of seeing her operation in the flesh.
We had taken the liberty of making up wish lists in advance so that it would let Peg do the cutting at her leisure but of course when faced with more bales there were a couple of extra choices made. Let me show you in pictures.
Is this Iowa? No, it's heaven.
The adorable Peg herself.
Travel organiser of the year.
We had a lovely visit - thank you Peg, for having us - I was particularly impressed by the whole concept that this fabric mad lady had started up a virtual business in her corner of the world and has customers all over the world. If you are not familiar with Sew Fresh, do go over and have a look at her super selections of fabric.
Oh, and Lynne, I gave her a hug from you, as requested!!
And I shall leave you with some, not brilliant, snaps of Ipswich town.........
Have a great weekend everyone.
