I will be participating in the Textile Society's annual Antique Textile & Vintage Fair at Chelsea Town Hall on Sunday 10 October. Do come and enjoy looking at good quality worldwide textiles. I will be the stand on the right as you enter the main hall. I look forward to seeing you.

I am still looking for a UK museum or gallry to donate the few items and ephemera which came from The Little Gallery - the influential 1930s craft shop owned by Muriel Rose and Peggy Turnbull. Please see the write up about them in ARTICLES.

Lots lovely pieces have been added to the website so do give it a good browse.
