World Textile Day

Yesterday, I went to the World Textile Day event that was held in the Minerva Arts Centre in Llanidloes. As well as enjoying talks by John Gillow and Martin Conlan there was some beautiful work to view and as usual, an opportunity to buy goodies, including fabric, from the traders. The best purchase of the day though, has to be the box of buttons I purchased from a little antique shop on the high street!

Below are some of the textiles that were being exhibited.
