Last year – despite the COVID restrictions in place – the textile enthusiasts of Hampshire, the New Forest and even Wiltshire gave us a hearty welcome in this textile friendly venue. Several folk even came from London! 2022 will be even better – with our entertaining and informative talks and delicious catering back on the agenda. To get you in the mood, here are some pix from previous World Textile Days.
