Llanidloes – and especially the Minerva Arts Centre – are very special to us. That’s where we held our very first World Textile Day way back in 2009. We just love coming back to friendly, artistic, laid-back Llanny. Local support here if fantastic and visitors come from all over just to feast on the textiles. Oh… and the cakes! Here are some pics from previous World Textile Days in Llanidloes.
