Very hungry caterpiller at Masons

January 23, 2011

I am more used to seeing the very hungry caterpiller at Mostly Books
but I see it has also made an appearance at Masons with some other materials for children’s quilt covers and curtains.

Masons is unique to Abingdon. They have 3 shops supplying Abingdon and the surrounding areas with material for sewing, knitting, needlecraft as well as craft material for jewellery making, card making and scrap booking. There is also a seamstress to fix zips, and you can buy a kilt pin there if you need one for Burns Night.

    When I was in the 6th form at the Convent (early 1980s!) we had to make our own summer skirts and we got the fabric from Masons. Nice to see them still there and presumably doing well. Will have to pop in next time I visit.

    I love Masons – the shops are a treasure trove. Long may they continue.

    i was once sent into masons as a kid by my mum to buy some wool – it was like entering another world… a world populated by plump grannies who looked at me as if they though i was about to mug them!
