I can't visit London without nipping into Liberty but last time I shared pics with you from inside the store was back in 2012.
On my visit last month, I met my quilty friend Gertie Pye for breakfast in Café Liberty and took fresh pics so let's have a look at what's happening there now.
Stepping out of the lift there's a huge array of home accessories in several of Liberty's fab designs
and stationery too.
Turning right we enter the main Liberty fabric gallery and see the season's new collections.
I love how the gallery is centred around an atrium giving the wooden structure so much light.
In the basket above are these gorgeous 2.5" squares - colour selections of various liberty prints put together by Alice Caroline. If you haven't heard of Alice Caroline they're a UK based company selling a variety of Liberty fabrics and kits and also have a Liberty Stars Club. You can sign up to receive either a Liberty six fat quarter bundle or six fat eighths bundle shipped to you either monthly or quarterly for 12 months AND they'll ship worldwide.
Disclaimer: I haven't ordered online from Alice Caroline or taken part in the Liberty Stars Club myself I'm providing the links for info only so you can explore yourselves.
In case you'd like a closer look at the sewing machine in the earlier pic, here it is for you. It's a Silver sewing machine with the Flowers of Liberty, Theodora Liberty print. The bad news, unless you're living in Britain, is that it's only compatible with British power supplies and sockets.
I've used the above print in a few pieces I've made over the years, it's a favourite of mine (click images to read more).
Above is another print I've had in my stash for several years now and not used yet. I took the pic though in honour of my NYC Metro MOD Quilt Guild friends - I think they bought every available yard of this particular print in a recent Manhattan store closing down sale and who can blame them at $10/yard!!! Shame I already had the prints on offer, hard to justify it then better just to feel sorry for yourself thinking about the price you paid :'(
And my purchases this visit which I paid quite a bit more than $10/yard for!?
I gave you sneak peeks earlier without you knowing!
Do you shop at Liberty when you're in London?
You know they sell much more than fabric too: fashion; home dec; beauty; jewellery; and more, you can get lost in there for hours.
