This year, as many of you must be aware, is the bicentenary of Jane Austen’s death. I have a number of dresses which might have been worn by her heroines.
Just back from the Colonial Williamsburg Printed Textile Symposium which was stimulating and enjoyable. It was good to meet clients I had not previously met and to be introduced to new enthusiasts.
The Textile Society’s Antique Textile Fair in Manchester celebrates 25 years of raising money for textile student bursaries and museum awards on Sunday 30th April. Come and join us for the day perusing the huge variety of stands which include world textiles and dress, listen to lectures and watch demonstrations. My stand will be the first on the right through the main doors to the hall. If you are visiting and want me to bring a particular item please let me know. I can’t take all my stock! www.textilesociety.org.uk
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.
