So, Sew Fresh

So a few weeks before our holiday, I mentioned to Janet that I had spotted a mention by Peg, of Sew Fresh Fabrics, that she lived in the Boston area...........
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.

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.


  1. What an Aladin's Cave! Lucky ladies in deed - no wonder you needed a list to (try to) stick to!
    By the way, there is also an Ipswich in Australia too. Those colonies do like to copy!

  2. Wow, Peg's shop looks stuffed with fabric! Gorgeous photos but you missed something...what did you both buy?!!

  3. Ooh wish I'd squeezed into your suitcase!

  4. Now that was a good day out! Hope you will be sharing your purchases with us soon to make us even greener :)

  5. How wonderful that you were able to visit her fabric world.

  6. Fabric heaven ! Pure bliss I would think. Di x

  7. My daughter always tries to say that we have matching eyes. Her's are a beautiful piercing blue. Mine are definitely green. Green, green eyes. But hopefully I'm not a monster ;-)

  8. What fun and it much have been so nice to see the fabric in person and to meet Peg too.

  9. Oooh I love Peg's shop but I hate the custom charges I get from shopping there so this is the perfect fix!

  10. I'm letting Janet plan my next holiday :oD
