I have discovered something very rare indeed and I am practically drooling. I spend a lot of my life browsing the Internet for decent sewing patterns and kits that aren't outdated (in a bad way) or age inappropriate. My dreams have quite literally come true with Merchant & Mills. They are a drapers from the beautiful town of Hay-on-Wye and these are the reasons I have fallen in love with them.
Number 1: beautiful Patterns.
Number 2: Brilliant bag kits.
Number 3: Unbelievably good packaging. (check out that typography)
Number 4: Lovely dressmaking fabrics (so difficult to find)
Number 4: Good quality and good looking notions.
Number 5: Really good photography.

I would also like to mention how beautiful the website is and how good their short courses sound.
I'm sorry for this mammoth post but I think they deserve it. Phew!
