No I’m not going to talk about THAT, I still feel very raw and upset. Instead, a distraction: two more dates for rag market meets, which will follow neatly after all my exam marking and the start of my summer break. Get your diaries, and book those tickets, join us for some fabric frenzy:
Tuesday July 26th and Saturday July 30th.
1.Meeting in the church tea rooms, St Martin in the Bullring, Birmingham, at 1030-11 am.
2.Fortified, and with objectives shared, a tour of the Rag Market, making sure you find the best stalls. This takes roughly 1-1.5 hours, depending on how many times we lose one another and the amount of fabric purchased, and how many outside stalls catch your notice.
3. Lunch at one of the fab eateries nearby- last time we went Japanese.
4. Over the road to the three floors of the Fancy Silk Store- more expensive but mind boggling.
5. Brief loo break at the tea rooms, then a ten minute walk to Barry’s Warehouse.
By this point, it’s usually around 4 or 430 [in case you need to book tickets] and any survivors head to the pub for fortification and a stash photo.
