World Textile Day - thanks to enthusiasm of our visitors and volunteers - is a true phenomenon.

From our modest launch in Wales six years ago, through our first expedition north of the border to Scotland, to our newest events across England, our free exhibition of stitched, printed, embroidered and woven textiles, costumes and artefacts from around the world has become one of the most important events in the textile calendar.

Please join us!

Textile Adventures

Every year we like to have a new, interesting and stimulating theme for World Textile Day. This helps to give the day a focus, both for us and for our enthusiastic visitors.

In 2015 our theme is Textile Adventures.

Both our free exhibition of world textiles and our morning and afternoon talks (£2 each, tickets at the door) will take you on a journey of discovery.

Would you like a supply of World Textile Day leaflets or posters for the event nearest you or your group?
