Ribbons and tassels and pom poms, oh my!

Sometimes, it’s the amazing things right on your doorstep that are the easiest to miss – and VV Rouleaux’s beautiful shop in Bath is one of them. It’s been just a 10-minute train trip away from me for a WHOLE YEAR, and somehow I’ve never been. So I was like a kid in a sweetshop – or, indeed, a sewist in a ribbon shop – when I popped over for their 1st birthday celebrations. Free workshops, celebratory cake and fizz, and racks and racks of haberdashery to browse – what’s not to love?

Sadly, my photos here don’t quite capture how gloriously colourful the shop is – it’s like walking into a rainbow. Feathers, hat-making supplies, pom poms, tassels and, of course, ribbons fill every corner of this inspiring space, which also includes a separate room for craft workshops.

I count it as a real achievement that I didn’t walk out with a bag bursting with ribbons – just a couple of lovely pom poms, because I couldn’t not get something. It has inspired me to be more creative with trims and embellishments in future, though, so I’ll be back with a shopping list in hand.
