Sewing Tour – Fabrications London

Saturday, November 3rd, 2012

Hi Everyone,

In today’s post I am pleased to introduce you to Barley Massey from Fabrications. Barley’s shop is held on a gorgeous street in London ‘Broadway Market in East London’ that has a fantastic vibe to it.

Fabrications is an independent shop and creative hub where Barley sells textile merchandise, haberdashery, creative products and gifts as well as running sewing and craft classes.

Barley specialises in up-cycling, making use of fabrics, fibers and discarded garments and clothing to re-create them into something new and original!

Watch the video below where I interview Barley at Fabrications.

Take a tour with us of Fabrications and learn about how Barley created a foot stool from discarded bike tires!

Check out Barley’s gorgeous sewing helper Tommy!

Creative displays

Barley sells a range of haberdashery and yarns as well as sewing machines in her shop.

Barley welcomes sewers from London and all over the world!

Chair covers in the sewing studio are beautiful embroidery pieces from Barley’s grandmother, the special person who taught and inspired Barley to sew when she was little.

Jacqueline takes time out from filming and photograhpy at Fabrications and then couldn’t tear herself away from Tommy the ever so cuddly sewing helper!

Thank you Barley for a lovely visit to Fabrications, we look forward to visiting again soon!

We highly recommend visiting Barley at Fabrications to join a class and be inspired by Barley’s inventive creations & techniques!
