New Embroidery Studio in Derbyshire.... White Peak Embroidery!

Do you enjoy of spot of hand embroidery? Or maybe cross stitch, tapestry? and how about a nice drive into the Derbyshire Dales and finish with gorgeous homemade cakes and tea?? Well, I might have just the thing.... White Peak Embroidery opened last week, and can be found on the main road through Darley Dale. Ann, who also owns and runs Heirs and Graces (only a few doors down the road) has always had a passion for sewing, and started her quilting business when the children were small. Heirs and Graces has a reputation for quality, and has a huge selection of patchwork fabrics, along with everything you need to become a top class quilter! Her husband, John, also runs The Complete Knit in Matlock... a heaven for hand knitters.

White Peak Embroidery (and tea room) has been one of Ann's dreams for a long time, and when the right premises became available, Ann jumped at the chance to make it reality. From the minute your about to walk through the door, handmade gifts and the vintage style of the shop are inviting you inside.

The Tea Room part of the shop will be opening soon... Ann gave me a sneak preview of vintage tables, chairs, cups and saucers she's been buying, along with antique sewing machines for display. This will be a ideal place to relax after your shopping... or park the other half while your shopping!

Once inside, the beautiful light shop has lots to offer, from your standard embroidery items to the most specialist fabrics, threads, ribbons and embroidery backings.

Heirs and Graces, is literally a few door down on the same road, and less then a minutes walk between both shops. The building used to be an old Wesleyan Church and is full of character...

Ann has even used the old pews to display all her fabulous patchwork fabrics.

For more information on Heirs and Graces, visit their website Patchwork Direct... and why not pop in for a lovely cup of tea next time your in the area.
