Love to Shop * Ribbon Circus Hebden Bridge

Whenever I am in the Noorth, I always call in for a morning, at least, to Hebden Bridge on the border between Yokshire and Lancashire. It is an old mill town with chunks of character and lots of pleasant, small independent shops to enjoy. It is always worth browsing the excellent thrift stores to savour the latest home-cooked gossip in true north accents.

A favourite needlework store is to be found on Albert Street. Ribbon Circus is a lovely haberdashery and knitting shop selling knitting yarns and wools, patterns and accesories, buttons and beads, ribbons and braids and haberdashery for all occasions. YOu can also choose from a gorgeous selection of patterned and plain tissue papers, Roger la Borde greetings cards and felting kits from Gillian Gladrags as well as felting equipment and merino tops. The shop is a riot of colour and is an inspiration to visit. Staff are friendly and there is free parking for one hour outside the shop. That will do nicely! I'm off to make some bunting of my own......
