Dolly Clackett
Dolly ClackettBlogger Roisin’s mix of witty writing and beautiful dresses make Dolly Clackett one of my go-to blogs if I’m in need of some ideas of what to make. The bright prints she uses in her makes and the fact that most of her sewing is made up of fifties style fit and flare dresses is the reason I regularly read her blog. Roisin takes her inspiration from the By Hand London girls and Christine Haynes, so if you love them too, then this blog is for you.

Diary of a Chain Stitcher

Londoner Fiona makes a mix of handmade clothing and set up her sewing blog about three years ago to track her sewing progress. She is also a regular pattern tester for sewing brand By Hand London and was one of the first people to make the indie sewing company’s Zeena dress in two lovely blue prints. Recent blog posts include sewing her own activewear!

What Katie Sews
Diary of a Chain Stitcher
If you’re looking for a sewing blog with lots of variety then What Katie Sews is one you won’t want to miss out on. The Londoner, who also runs blog, What Katie Does, set up her blog in an attempt to build a wearable, everyday wardrobe. Katie likes to sew her own basics with a few special makes thrown in and her more neutral prints are what attracted me to the blog in the first place.

Amy is a girl after my own heart – a fan of printed dresses and Liberty fabrics. Her blog, Almond Rock, features her favourite makes as well as the lovely fabric she chooses to make them with – her Eiffel tower printed dress is definitely worth checking out! Amy lives in Leeds and is also the editor of craft magazine Love Sewing, so you know she’s got some great advice.

Recent posts include Karen’s colour inspiration and fabric shopping in Berlin, but she also champions the indie sewing companies as well as her area of London, Walthamstow. Give Did You Make That? a follow if you’re looking for a great read!

    Excellent service - William Gee supplied thread for curtain making that I had struggled to find elsewhere and for a fraction of the price of the few suppliers I had managed to find elsewhere. Delivery was fast and reasonably priced. Would recommend and will be shopping there again. Thank you.

    I placed an order for some haberdashery items. They arrived well packed and secure so there was no damage; and, earlier than I expected to receive them. Good quality products, will definitely be ordering again. Thank you very much!

    Placed an order online to collect, was ready quickly and they called to tell me so. Through browsing online store it is probably the best stocked haberdashery in the uk, stocking harder to find and a lot of items for designers. Will definatly be using again.

    I placed my first order recently and I was very pleased with my purchases. Everything was as described, the quality was outstanding and it was all affordable. Their wide range of haberdashery is the best I've come across. I'll definitely be back for another haul.

    I visited WilliamGee store today. I am a new starter in sewing, so I had just a paper with a list of unknown words to me. Effie, the sales assistant, was very helpful, indeed. She explained to me what I needed for and replied friendly to my queries. So, I easily found all I needed and I am happy! I will definitely recommend this place.

    Incredible sewing and craft shop, reminds me of long established sewing shops in Manchester growing up in the 80s. It's not a massive shop but they have everything you could ever want at very competitive prices. I also love their bargain bundles and bags.Staff are incredibly friendly and helpful too. I have done both click and collect online and bought from the shop in person, both great experiences but if you're easily tempted I advise the former option.
