World Textile Days 2020

World Textile Days in the year of COVID

Many of you are great fans of the eight World Textile Days per year that we organise with Diane and Jim Gaffney of Textile Traders and our enthusiastic team of world textiles experts.

Alas, in the year of COVID, our schedule has been severely curtailed. Some events are still planned to go ahead, though... details below.

Dates for 2021: We're working on venue confirmations right now and will announce our schedule here soon. Or sign up for our e-Newsletter for the latest updates.
