I have a dream...

Photo: Susie's Country Cottage and Garden.

Switzerland is beautiful but hey, very old fashion. No new fresh and crisp Amy Butler, Cath Kidston, Kaffe Fasett, Tilda or Heather Bailey around here. No fun colours of yarn in the shops. No fun shops at all, just boring and ugly and disorganized. It is like they don't have a sense of marketing themselves. You step in and it is messy. I mean if you visit a yarn shop in England for example, you step into a world of colours and crafty fantasy. Here - no!

It would be a dream to have something beautiful like a Crochet/Fabric/Quilt Club Café on the lake or something with a vintage sofa and fresh made muffins and the smell of a coffee brewer when you step in. Sit down, indulge yourself in colours and materials, books and patterns. Chat with a friend. Even have a sewing machine set up for the one who wants to give it a go. Meet there for crochet courses to learn the basics and meet others with the same interest. Gossip away and have a moment in a world decorated with vintage roses and fresh crisp colours, old beautiful restored furnitures and odd thrift store finds. A dream that is, wouldn't work in this country. But keep dreaming and the dream might come true. Never give up.
Today I am dreaming. Big time.

  1. Ooooh,love these inages. I think most look American? My local yarn shop is so cluttered ,it's a bit of putting as you have to ask for things instead of just browse. Still it's quite cheap so I guess I shouldn't moan :0)

  5. I'm dreaming along with you as there is absolutely nothing like that "down-under' that I know of. Finding a yarn shop is hard enough, let alone wanting anything else. Usually they are tiny, crowded (which can be good) but difficult to negotiate. And I won't go on about price
    Back to dreaming

  7. Jag kan ju inte annat än hálla med. Har samma dröm. Men det skulle aldrig funka här. Det är för modernt.
