What makes World Textile Day GREAT?

Watch the video of World Textile Day Wales in Llanidloes, March 2019.

Beware: the cakes are as tempting as the textiles!

Can we bring the shop to you? Magie and Bob at World Textile Day in Frodsham, 2018

We'd love to come to your group

Have you noticed we've cut down on the big shows? We've only got Festival of Quilts left. Here's why.

From our World Textile Days, we've discovered something important about running a small scale, fair trade business. We're not just selling fabrics, beads and baskets. We're communicating our experiences and our passion for what we do directly to you.

So instead of big shows, we'd rather bring our mobile shop to you. These types of events are perfect for what we're talking about:

  • Guild regional and area days
  • Quilt groups
  • Embroiderers' Guilds
  • Spinners, Weavers and Dyers Guilds
  • Textile and costume groups

Invite Magie as a speaker and we'll bring the shop with us!
