The Organisers

World Textile Day is organised (mainly) by Diane and Jim Gaffney of Textile Traders and Magie Relph and Bob Irwin of The African Fabric Shop.

We are supported by our friends and partners: John Gillow, Martin Conlan, Meri Hunneyball, Susan Briscoe, Gilly Thomson, Liz Beasley, Jane Callender, Joan and John Fisher and Tanya Byrne. Plus, of course, our wonderful hosts in the many venues we visit around the country.
