Designer’s Guild

While wandering around Chelsea in London, I found one of the places I have loved for years without ever having been there. I have the books, browse the sites and the store was just, if not more, magical. An entire wall of pillows, racks of fabrics, dozens of vignettes. Wonderful ideas for home and children and office. I think I spent 2 hrs in there just looking around.

The Designer's Guild founded by Tricia Guild was a treasure trove of visual goodies. 

Unfortunately they wouldn't allow me to take any pictures indoors so most of these shots are from the outside windows. But I figured these were better than nothing…



Talk to you soon.

    Wow that looks like a great shop. Do they sell they any mid-weight cottons that could be used for quilting? My husband is from London and we visit his family every other year. We are due for a trip next year. Last time I visited a quilt shop in Seven Oaks in Surrey. I would really love to visit quilt shop near Kew Gardens this trip. I’m wondering if I should add this shop to my list of shops to visit.

    Thanks for continually taking us all on your many adventures. We get to see places we normally wouldn’t get to.

    Have a blessed holiday season.

    (p.s. how is the broken leg on the munchkin coming along?)

    They mostly do decorator weight fabrics for the homes. But its still a beautiful place to be.

    Happy Sewing,
