Journals at Ray Stitch

We just wanted to take the opportunity to let you all know that we do in fact stock some journals alongside our beautiful fabrics, necessary haberdashery and fun selection of trims and buttons. The new issues of Selvedge, Uppercase and Oh Comely arrived towards the end of last week. Each journal provides us with inspiration in different ways; they teach us, show us new things we didn't know we wanted to know, and basically just boggle our eyes. They make us want to make, to explore, to excite...

I remember coming across oh Comely many many years ago when Borders or something similar existed in our retail park. I picked it up because the cover looked pretty, and in fact, I do that when choosing novels. The same goes for Selvedge and Uppercase - the covers are enticing, with immaculate photography and the nicest of colour combinations. They tantilise really, and consequently are the ultimate treat. Who doesn't love to sit with a coffee and catch up on reading? We stock these three journals in particular because we could spend all day reading them, revelling in what they offer us both visually and mentally.

What these three journals provide, is each a contrasting outlook (Selvedge for the natural, Uppercase for the contemporary, Oh Comely for the quirky) and yet there are stark similarities. They all champion a slower way of living, the necessity to go out and explore, the desire to try out new things... The articles that they produce make you want to do everything and, even though we know we don't have time (we're sat in a coffee shop reading a magazine after all), it excites us and makes us believe that anything is possible. I don't know what better treat there is than increasing your wellbeing.

If you have never come across these three journals before, whet your appetite with their blogs: Uppercase, Selvedge, and Oh Comely. And fortunately for you, we do mail order on these lovelies.
