What I love about London is all its quirky little-known museums. This weekend, I discovered the London Sewing Machine Museum in Tooting thanks to IanVisits. Housed in an unremarkable warehouse on the busy Balham High Street (308 Balham High Street SW17 7AA) a short walk from the Tooting underground station, this museum is free but is only open on the first Saturday of every month. With its amazing collection of beautifully restored sewing machines from the Victorian era to the Art Deco era, you don't have to know anything about sewing machines to love this place. And yes, what an excuse to get the camera out, after months of winter hibernation!
