The Grand Opening of Guthrie & Ghani

Lauren from the Great British Sewing Bee has opened her new shop!


This weekend saw the grand opening party for Guthrie & Ghani, the new haberdashery shop from husband and wife team Lauren and Ayaz. 

The Couple

Those of you who watched the fabulous (and far too short in our opinion!) series, The Great British Sewing Bee, will recognise the excellent Lauren as a previous contestant on the show. We think it's absolutely brilliant that she has persued her passion for all things sewing and opened what looks like a stunner of a haberdashery shop.   

The shop is based in Moselely Village, Birmingham, in a beautiful mock Tudor building, built in 1898. They've done a brilliant job rennovating the building, just check out the before and after pics below!

Not only does the shop look lovely on the outside but they've done a fantastic job with the interior, plus they've got a gorgeous collection of products to choose from (just check out those lovely rolls of fabrics that we spied). Plus the shop is complete with a purpose designed creative studio where they will be running a host of exciting workshops and short courses.

It looks like the grand opening was a great success - we're certainly going to keep an eye on what else Guthrie & Ghani have in store for us this year.
