This time we decided to drive north, to Midsomer Quilting.
The shop might not look very big from the outside, but that is deceiving. It is like the tardis, it opens up in front of you, with shelves cramped with lovely fabrics. The choice is not easy, but nice people are there to help and I came away happy. They even have a "creche for men", with comfortable chairs and as much coffee and tea, as they want.
Even DH came away with something for himself, a book "No Thankful Village", written by Chris Howell, a co-founder of Midsomer Quilting. It is about the community in the area around Midsomer Norton and Radstock, which he obviously feels very strongly about, and how it was affected by the Great War 1914 - 1918. This area is a part of an ancient coal fields in Mendip Hills.
Thank you De, Birgitta and Chris!
