Last weekend I ran my first ever workshop at The Village Haberdashery in West Hampstead and I’m now officially in love. From the moment I stepped into this cute little crafty heaven, I immediately felt at home. What crafty person wouldn’t be with all the beautiful reals of fabric, cute craft kits and cosy wool? If any of you ever find yourselves near West Hampstead station, or even just feel like a day out, I couldn’t recommend it more. The shop is beautifully designed with a great range of products from classic to contemporary. I thought I’d share the love with a few photos from the shop… and also a few from the workshop I ran – hope you enjoy them!
P.s. if you’d like to book onto a rag rug workshop at The Village Haberdashery later in the year, you can do so here 🙂
The Village Haberdashery in West Hampstead is a haven for all things crafty.
It’s absolutely dreamy… I heartily approve as a lover of colour.
I particularly liked this wooden wheelbarrow – what a cute display idea.
After gawping at the front for a while, I headed into the workshop area which has lovely views over Hampstead. Sometimes I feel like setting up for my workshops is like laying the table for a dinner party!

Everyone was trying to work out what I meant by “KRIA” throughout the class and on my Instagram but it didn’t have any deep meaning – those just so happened to be the letters I brought along… sorry to disappoint!
I was teaching nine lovely ladies how to rag rug at the weekend.
I brought along masses of rags for everyone to dive into. I like separating them by colour using clear sandwich bags.
The new rag ruggers hard at work!
It was great seeing everyone get stuck into the rag rugging.
I couldn’t have asked for better company for the day… thanks ladies!
