Featured items

I have just booked for the Colonial Williamsburg Printed Textile Symposium.  It would be good to meet any of you who also happen to be going.

The pound is at a record low, so it is much more advantageous for the rest of the world to purchase from the UK at present. I look forward to hearing from you.

If you see an item on my website which interests you, do let me know so I can hold it for you for a couple of days. This particularly relates to museums, where they need to get approval to purchase.  

You will notice there have been some changes on the website. This is to accomodate viewing on i phones and i pads. I notice because we have enlarged the photos, many are blurd. We are working on taking new ones.

This year is the 25th anniversary of the Textile Society's Antique Textile Fair, held in Manchester.  The day is packed with 60 stands selling all types of antique and vintage costumes and textiles. Talks throughout the day and demonstrations by the various Guilds. Allow all day. I look forward to seeing you all on Sunday 30 April, much later than previous years. 10-4.30.
