I have been asked to post the following information:

The Textile Society’s Annual Manchester Antique Textile Fair

Sunday 9 March 2008

Armitage Centre, Moseley Road, Fallowfield, Manchester
10 – 5 pm (Trade 8.30 am)
Admission: £6 (Trade £10). Concessions: Full-time Students, Senior Citizens £4

Incorporating the Societies and Guilds Show, lectures and demonstrations.

130 stands piled high with fabulous textiles and garments from all over the world which are collectable, hangable or wearable. Racks of vintage dresses and ethnic clothing, textiles from the mysterious East, wearable Japanese kimonos and Chinese robes and Central Asian ikat coats. Bundles of braids, loops of ribbons, boxes of buttons, silks and satins, English costumes from 18th and 19th century, embroideries worldwide and knitting, along with old household linens from France. Arts & Crafts textiles and newly fashionable 20th century Artist/Designer Textiles will also piled high. Children’s’ clothes from across the globe, smocks, hats, shoes and bags from the 18th century to 1970’s.

Dealers travel across the country, some from France, set out their stands in a huge hall that is quickly transformed by the colours and textures of beautiful fabrics. Specialist book dealers, and conservation experts, all gathered in one convenient place for the amateur or professional’s delight. The Embroiders’ Guild will have a bookstand, whilst the experienced practitioners from the Quilters and Lace Guilds will demonstrate their skills and be pleased to offer advice.

We are a registered charity with proceeds from the day going to student textile bursaries.

Come and join us for a stimulating and exciting day out. Refreshments and free car park.
