Only one World Textile Day left in 2014
1 November 2014 - West of England - Bristol
Full details below.
2014 marks a milestone year for World Textile Day.
We are bringing World Textile Day to two new venues in England: first Romsey in Hampshire and second Saltford, which is just outside Bristol on the road to Bath.
Both are fantastic, easy-to-reach halls and just perfect for showing off our collections of textiles and costumes from around the world.
This is in addition to our well-established events at Llanidloes in Wales, Bridge of Allan in Scotland and Mundford in Norfolk.
Full details of each event are below. Hopefully, we'll see you at one of our World Textile Days in 2014!

The Spirit of the Cloth
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 2014 our theme is The Spirit of the Cloth and our free exhibition of world textiles will take you on a journey of discovery.
Plus: Our two speakers this year will be world textiles experts John Gillow and Martin Conlan.
If you would like more info about our World Textile Days in England, Scotland or Wales, please Contact us.
