It's still a good time to buy with the £ being low!!!!!

We will be exhibiting at The Textile Society's London Antique Textile Fair on sunday 2 October at Chelsea Town Hall, King's Road, London SW3. www.textilesociety.org.uk

It is a chance to meet up and see some wonderful textiles and costumes, both antique and vintage. All the stallholders hold good quality stock and it is a good opportunity to learn. We will be in the Small Hall near the windows, so do come and say hello.  If you see anything on the website which you would like me to take along, do let me know. Why not combine your day with a visit to Undressed: A Brief History of Underwear at the V & A museum. It's well worth seeing.
