World Textile Day South West on Saturday

We are bringing World Textile Day to the South West for the first time on Saturday - to Saltford, near Bristol.  All the info is on the main World Textile Day website - click here.

As it is our first time, I can't show you photos of the venue yet, but here are photos of us at previous World Textile days and other trading days...


I've got a few of these 'Tairyobata' (great catch flag panels) that I brought back from the last trip and lots of fat quarters.

Plus we have lots of lovely Japanese silks, wools and cottons on the bolt, sashiko threads etc.

I love using our Japanese fabrics with African fabrics from the African Fabric Shop...

... like this quilt top combining a cotton yukata print (sunflowers) with African batiks.

I've got some books for sale, including the 1718 coverlet book.

Here's a peek at some of the current silk and wool bolts - just a handful of the dozens already packed in the van, including a big selection of silks in beautiful autumnal colours.

We're looking forward to a fun weekend and hope to meet lots of textile fans on Saturday.
