And onto Folkwear

Then it was on to a new shop in town....Meet Molly Hamilton, owner of this wonderful, new shop called Folkwear. Do you remember the line of Folkwear patterns ...out many years ago. They were wonderful, authentic, unique and just fun to own. I  had many of them, some I made into clothing and some I just liked to look at .....over and over because they were beautiful designs. Molly has a wall full and just looking at them brought back memories.

Meet Molly......
There is eye candy for the fabric lover everywhere you look, bins of fabric, lots of patterns and even a small blackboard announcing the latest events.
The mini library has wonderful books and magazines dealing with all areas of clothing and grab a book

and have a seat in this very comfortable chair...also surrounded by samples of vintage designs.

There are areas for cutting and sewing where you can see how they work; Molly and her partner make many of the wonderful samples you are about to see.
And this room...what can I say about this room...."died and gone to fiberart heaven"...? Every pattern in the store has at least one sample in fabric and often in authentic fabric suitable to the time period of the pattern. AND.....many you can try on to see how they work on you. There is also an amazing section of old, authentic pieces just for looking as they are delicate and the fibers old but so beautiful just to be able to see them up close.

So here Cathy found a wrap she loved after trying it on and here is the pattern - how much fun is that. I have to say, several of us tried it on and purchased the pattern.
And here is our Dort who looks adorable in the 1940s dress....She had to have the pattern also.
I hope you get the chance to stop on by to see this wonderful new shop on Charlotte Highway in Fairview (in the same strip mall as Americare pharmacy and Local Joint restaurant)I am linked to Whoop Whoop Friday and Off the Wall Friday.
