World Textile Day at Llanidloes
Here are some of Bob's photos from World Textile Day on Saturday. After a quiet morning, the event got really busy in the afternoon.
Welsh Heritage Quilters did the refreshments - that was busy too.
Jim and Magie with one of the 'show and tell' pieces. At the end of the short talks in the afternoon, this was a new idea. Wish I could have seen everything but that was when things got hectic on the sales.
We had two new traders this year - Simon selling Nepalese pashminas and Nataliya with Ukranian textiles, carvings and painted eggs.
Di looked amazing wearing a wedding outfit for her talk about batik.
We had a surprise visitor in the afternoon. At the end of the 1980s, I used to sell hand knits and tie dyes at craft shows in west Wales and Ann-Marie used to do wirework jewelry. We did a lot of shows together but I haven't seen her since 1991! Really nice to meet up again and we will have to have a holiday in mid Wales sometime so we can have a proper catch up.
We won't be at World Textile Day in Llandiloes next year, because the weekend clashes with one of my City & Guilds P & Q diploma weekends and, as it is almost the end of the course, I really don't want to miss it, but I plan to return in future.
