Highlights from the Textiles Fair
August 29, 2014 - Zoe Dennington
We had a fabulous afternoon at last Saturday’s Textiles Fair, with stallholders bringing a huge range of stunning fabrics, yarns, silks, quilts, and garments. Here are some of our highlights.
Donna Flower’s exquisite display of vintage fabrics, buttons and small delights was a feast for the eyes.
Heart Space Studio’s brought along their display of crazy patchwork hearts, both antique and contemporary. You can learn to make your own at their workshop at the Museum on 4 October.
Jewel-coloured fabrics from Mulberry Silks…
…and rainbow threads and silks from Claire’s Lace.
Helen Roskell brought along a selection of vintage fabrics, including these beautiful quilts.
We were dazzled by this one-off design by Jan Knibbs…
… and loved the Moroccan jewellery and garments from Kitan.
Thanks so much to all the stallholders, and everyone who came along to enjoy the fair. See you all next year!
