The Othery Vintage Textile and Rag Market





Yesterday dawned grey and wet....a rather gloomy start to our first Vintage Textile and Rag Market in Othery village hall in  Somerset.


The gloom began to lift as the hall filled with stallholders busy in the task of setting up their stands.....



It didn't take long for things to be arranged and in place...



Each stand brimming with goodies....





Despite the weather, there was a definite floral and cheery theme on many of the stands.....


 The day flew by in a blur of laughter and chat with a lovely crowd of enthusiastic customers. A big Thank you to Pam, aka Sowy Stitch for making us so welcome in her village and introducing us to all her stitching friends!


We are already planning a date to return in 2014, so watch this space for the confirmation of the next event. In the meantime, there is another West Country Textile event in Trull village hall on Saturday 26th October. Click the link here for further details.

Thanks Liz & Jack - I think we made up for the gloom outside with such a lovely atmosphere - ever is it so at Vintage Bazaar fairs. x

Do you young things know that there was a first flowering of wonderful crafting in the 1970s? (I expect you do - the magazines are still around.) Why oh why did I have time to do it all then - but now I can't find time to sew?
It looks like a fab event!
