The West Country Vintage Textile Market




 Good evening everyone, just snatching the chance to update my blog. We are busy getting ready for  The West Country Textile Market in Trull Memorial Hall, near Taunton, Somerset on Saturday 30th May, I have set up a facebook page for this event here. The doors open at 9am and the fair will close at 2 pm. Admission £1.



Expect to find plenty of colourful textiles....This is a super event for makers as many of the stands will be selling vintage trimmings, buttons, lace, linens and a wide range of fabric from dress-making to upholstery weight pieces.

 Vintage to Victorian


Susie and Russell Needham

Jenny Hirst


German Linens from La Camionnette Bleue


Liberty textiles for sale on Stefanie's stand...


1930s Paisley eiderdown fabric, perfect for patchwork projects.

As well as our own events we will be selling at those listed on the blog sidebar. If you click on the image there is a link to the organiser which should give more information about location, opening times etc.
Hope to see you somewhere soon, Lizzie x

Oh my goodness! First there's my sadness at living too far away to visit your fairs and secondly my terror that you are whizzing through 2015, a year that I need to go at a snail's pace with all I have to do for a very important date in August. (DD's wedding).Happy New Year and good luck with your shows, but please slow down a bit.

Thank you for your comments. Please have no fear WinnibriggsHouse, I am planning to have some weekends off this year. We will not be working every weekend. xxx

Happy New Year to you too Lizzie! I think I might pay the Collectors Auction a visit in March - do you know if there is anything knitty in the auction?

A bit of a belated happy new year, and I really hope to get to visit some of these this year! x

Thank you for your comments. There are sure to be some vintage knitwear in the auction... I still haven't finished unpacking all the boxes....
