Hi Everyone,

Our next stop on our London 2012 Sewing Tour was ‘V V Rouleaux’ which is a gorgeous shop filled with beautiful ribbons, trims, tie backs and more!

Faye and the team at V V Rouleaux gave us a very warm welcome, shared interesting information about what they offer including their unique approach to helping creative people all over the world with their sewing projects!

Annabel Lewis is the founder of V V Rouleaux where in 1990 she closed her flower shop in Parsons Green and opened a ribbon shop - V V Rouleaux.

I just LOVE tassels!

V V Rouleaux re-cycle everything and don’t throw a scrap away. Instead they make unique pieces from the short ends of their ribbons and trims just like the gorgeous models below. They are available for sale at V V Rouleaux.

So many trims – which one will Jacqueline choose for her next sewing project?

Amazing masks at V V Rouleaux!

Hi Everyone,

Our next stop on our London 2012 Sewing Tour was ‘The Button Queen’ and yes as you guessed it a shop full of buttons!

Martyn Frith from The Button Queen welcomed us into his quaint button shop and shared some fabulous tips and showed us beautiful antique buttons!

The Button Queen is now run by Martyn and Isabel Frith, however the business was founded by Martyn’s mother, Toni, who was an antique dealer in the 1950′s! The Button Queen is the only shop in London that specialises in both modern and antique buttons.

Watch the video below where Martyn shows us some beautiful rose antique buttons and gives a great tip on getting the most out of antique or extra special buttons when sewing.

Martyn tells us about the history of The Button Queen and it came to be!

Learn all about the large variety of customers who shop at The Button Queen in the video below.

Martyn offers a fantastic service to not only local people in London but also all over the world. Watch the video below to discover how he might be able to help you!
