This meetup consists of 2 parts, you can join only one or you can join both- read on for details. Please express your interest and say which part or parts you want to join. I will be wearing a black and white wool hat with a strange tassel so you can identify me, i might also be brave enough to stand by the tube entrance waving a placard with "London Dressmakers Club" written on it.
Part 1- meet at Walthamstow Central Tube station 10.30 for 10.45 start.
Part 2- meet at Walthamstow Central Tube station at 12.45.
Part 1. Photoshoot. Wear some handmade clothes you want to photograph and bring a camera. Meet at Walthamstow Central tube station from 10.30 for 10.45 start. We will take a short walk, via some interesting buildings, to God's Own Junkyard, an amazing neon light store and cafe (with homemade cakes!). What you see above is only a small part of the wonderful neon signs. We will spend awhile here camera clicking and indulging our need for coffee and cake etc. You can bring more than one outfit and change in a Dr Who type police box (yes, really).
Part 2. Walk back to the tube station and meet up with those who are joining this part and on to Walthamstow Market for fabric shopping- time for meet up for fabric shopping only 12.45, again at Walthstow Central tube station. Remember that Walthamstow Market has 2 or 3 specialist haberdashery shops as well as fabric shops and stalls so it may be a good place to stock up on buttons, zips etc.
End time is flexible depending on how long you want to shop and what refreshment you need.
