Loop is a lovely store filled with so many, many appealing things (alongside the well chosen yarn selection there are vintage buttons and beautiful knitting themed items galore). It was a delight to visit this afternoon, although I was a little too busy chatting with knitters and signing books to actually take many pictures!
Thank you to everyone who braved the rain and came along, it was great to see you.
Loop have been stocking the 1st book for quite a while (yay!) and I got a little overexcited to see that it has a proper label on the shelf and everything.
On the way back to our hotel, Tim (the gps) took us on an interesting, if slightly nerve wracking tour through some of London’s busiest streets.
Tomorrow morning we’re leaving London for nearby Reading – we’ll be at Jelly, The Old Town Hall, Blagrave Street, Reading RG1 1QH from 1-3.
Introducing the first in an ongoing series of guest posts. I'm honoured that we're beginning with this vital letter from Emi Ito.
Emi has been outspoken about the cultural appropriation of the kimono in fashion and has helped many makers and designers find a less hurtful approach to naming their patterns and products.
