High on my list of must-sees in the UK was the new Selvedge store in North London; the first retail venture of the wonderfully literate magazine Selvedge, which documents "a belief system based on a cerebral and sensual addiction to textiles in all forms." A couple of years ago Selvedge launched an online drygoods store; now they've opened a brick and mortar shop at 164 Archway Road stocking textile-related books, fabrics, sewing notions, and handmade objects from the drygoods range. Go to Selvedge for more information.
