We're getting super excited about out upcoming trip to the coast for the Brighton Knit and Make Social in a couple of weeks. Today we're excited to tell you all about one of our stops on the mini crawl - Ditto Fabrics. We chatted with owner Gill about her shop that is full to bursting with all sorts of inspirational fabrics!
