Event: World Textile Day – Wales

World Textile day –  17 March 10:00-16:30, Llanidloes, Wales

 

Hard to believe, but 2018 marks the10th great year of World Textile Day. These now take place in seven venues, but the very first was in friendly, artistic, laid-back Llanidloes. Great town, great venue and great hosts – the Quilt Association of Wales, who just happen to make great cakes.

This year Susan Briscoe will be giving a talk entitled Hand to Hand: Japanese Sashiko. There will also be a Fair Trade market with an eclectic mix of textiles from around the world.
