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.
P.P.S John Lewis opens at 9am for anyone arriving early.
11:00 – 13:00: Birmingham Rag Market & Fabric Shops
13:00 – 13:30: Reconvene and travel to Moseley Village (Guthrie & Ghani) by bus
The journey between the city centre and Moseley only takes 15 minutes by bus, and buses are every 5-10 minutes.
13:30 – 17:00: Guthrie & Ghani / Lunch
At Guthrie & Ghani we’ll have time in the shop which sells a wide range of sewing and knitting supplies, and we’ll have use of the studio above the shop where we will be able to natter, compare purchases, and hold a pattern & fabric swap.
Attendees can also grab lunch at one of the nearby pubs or cafes. The Village and The Dark Horse bar/restaurant are both a couple of minutes walk from Guthrie & Ghani, and there are lots of other options available within Moseley Village.
