Sew Irish

Happy St. Paddy's Day, Gals! Hope you are wearin the green and enjoying some fine spirits or other good Irish treats.


Tea at Bewleys

good for you! 

 I went to Ireland this past year and I found a couple of lovely shops to purchase fabric.

 The Cloth Shop was really fresh simple and had loads of Liberty of London and Amy Butler.  The sweet shop owner's daughter had a little friend under the cash counter and he looked just like our little Teddy. It is on south King Street if you are ever so lucky as to go there.

Gorgeous Liberty.

Murphy Sheehy
 And on to another fabric shop Murphy Sheehy Fabrics quite by accident down an alley and full of sale Liberty and other wonderful rolls of fabric. They have a wonderful little Sewing Academy upstairs.

Also, very near here was an absolutely fantastic Ribbon shop full of spools and spools of glorious trim. This darling window display was so adorable! 

Ribbons and More Ribbons

And on the way back to the hotel crossing the big boulevard near the River Liffey, a fashion statement indeed!

So, here's wishing you happy March sewing and in the words of William Butler Yeats:

 "Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths,
 Enwrought with golden and silver lights,
 The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
 Of night and light and the half-light..."


  1. Fun! You must have had heavier suitcases on your return trip!

  2. Love this post!!! I hope you came home with your suitcases full and your heart as well!
