Itinerary

The planned itinerary for Saturday 05th October is below. Attendees can feel free to dip in and out, or only attend for part of the day.

10:00 – 11:00: Meet at John Lewis Cafe & Haberdashery

We’ll be meeting in John Lewis Cafe (The Place to Eat), where we’ll be able to drink tea and/or eat brunch while everyone arrives. We’ll also be able to shop in the Haberdashery, which is located on the same floor as the cafe (4th floor).

P.S. If you’re arriving by train, John Lewis is located in the same building as New Street Station, and the other stations (Moor Street and Snow Hill) are only a 10-15 minute walk. John Lewis opens at 9am for anyone arriving early.

11:00 – 13:00: Birmingham Rag Market & Fabric Shops

We’ll spend a couple of hours shopping for fabric at the Rag Market and nearby fabric shops Barry’s Fabric & Fancy Silk Store.

13:00 – 13:30: Travel to Moseley Village (Guthrie & Ghani) by bus

The journey between the city centre and Moseley takes around 15 minutes via the number 50 bus (the bus stop is located outside Selfridges), and buses arrive every 5-10 minutes.

13:30 – 17:00: Guthrie & Ghani / The Dark Horse

At Guthrie & Ghani we’ll have time in the shop which sells a wide range of sewing supplies, and we’ll have use of the studio above the shop where we will hold a pattern & fabric swap and charity raffle (with prize winners drawn at approximately 15:30).

The upstairs room of nearby pub The Dark Horse, which is a couple of minutes walk from Guthrie & Ghani, is reserved for meet-up attendees (there are also lots of other food & drink options available within Moseley Village).
