Happy 1st Birthday

We had a lovely day visiting family in Birmingham yesterday. And it happened to be the 1st Birthday at Guthrie and Ghani - Haberdashery, Fabric & Yarn Store in Moseley. We were just down the road from there and decided to pay a visit to this lovely shop. The building has been newly renovated and is light and airy. Celebrations were in full swing when we arrived with lots of people enjoying the birthday cake and homemade lemonade.

So here's a look around the shop and the lovely fabrics, yarns and notions available.

I was delighted to receive a gift voucher way back at Christmas from my family to spend in the shop. So here's what I came away with, some skeins of sock yarn and a skein of lace weight for a shawl. The Easyknits brand was new to me. They are a small London based indie yarn dying company. I have since checked out their website and the range of colours looks gorgeous. Easyknits can also be found on Ravelry.



  1. Looks fabulous! What a nice day out.

  2. Oh my goodness, what a super shop! The photo of the wall of wool makes my heart beat faster! And the spools of ribbon and that chest of drawers! I look forward to seeing your completed projects with the wool you bought - glad to hear you had a lovely day.
