Sew Creative - Fabric Shopping

I had a day trip to Norwich yesterday to return youngest son to uni.  For a bit of relaxation before starting out on our return journey we went off to Wroxham Barns for coffee and cake and that meant a visit to Sew Creative.
I bought some batik fat quarters which I thought might be good to use on projects in a new book - more on that in another post - and a bigger than one metre square piece of hand dyed.  I thought the hand dye would be good to back the Susan Briscoe Super Strip quilt, but on reflection I think it's too good to go on the back of something so it may become part of a Ricky Tims convergence quilt. 
If you're in the Norwich area and want to buy or look at top quality quilting fabric it's worth a visit - don't confuse it with the shop of the same name in Norwich city or you will be disappointed.  Wroxham is just a few miles out of Norwich and at the Barns complex there are various craft shops, restaurant, coffee shop, garden centre etc, etc.
Here's a link to the quilt shop http://www.sewcreativequilts.co.uk/
