New haberdashery shop in Oxford

Darn It & Stitch

Darn It & Stitch

I was so thrilled a week or so ago to receive an email from the lovely Jo of Darn it and Stitch letting me know that she would shortly be opening a haberdashery shop in Oxford which, despite its size and the fact that it appears to be packed to the gills with crafty people, has been woefully lacking in that department for a good many years. You may remember the lovely vintage buttons that I bought from Jo's stall at the Gloucester Green craft market back in November. Well, the shop has even more vintage buttons and trimmings, notions, zips, yarn, thread, knitting needles, you name it. In fact Jo even has a wish-list at the counter so you can suggest new items you'd like to see in the shop!

It was perfect timing for me. I scored a bright pink zip for my Vogue/Amy Butler skirt and these two fabulous brooches by Bee Ferrari as birthday gifts.

Do pop along and see Jo - her shop is a crafter's dream and there's more (fabrics and classes) to come!

I stopped by last week and had a long chat with Jo. She's lovely, and even suggested a printer in town for printing up patterns!

What a lovely store! I'm glad you finally have it :) Next time I visit Oxford, I'll definitely be stopping by.

Thanks for letting us know about Darn It and Stitch. I stopped by on Saturday and Jo has some lovely stuff. I'm just so excited we now have a haberdashery in Oxford.
