World Textile Day last Saturday and on June 17th WTD Scotland

We had a very good day at World Textile Day in Kings Sutton yesterday and met some great people.  I'm looking forward to seeing photos of some of the interesting projects planned using my fabrics!

If you have ever wondered at the amount of work that goes into setting up a World Textile Day, here are some of the 'behind the scenes' photos from Friday afternoon.  Typically, we set up the show in less than six hours, but that is after our traders have driven heavily packed vans and cars from all regions of the UK, usually starting our journeys the previous day, after packing the vehicles...  On top of the travels we all do to source our goodies - and a lot of them really do take a great deal of hunting down - there is a lot of work to do to set up the event.  But it means we can bring our treasures to a hall near you.

Our next World Textile Day is at Bridge of Allan, near Stirling on June 17th.  Looking foward to seeing everyone there once again!
