Celebrate our 10th anniversary World Textile Day in Llanidloes

Hard to believe, but 2018 marks the 10th great year of World Textile Day. We’ve grown to seven venues since then, but our very first (dare we say favourite?) was in friendly, artistic, laid-back Llanidloes. Great town, great venue and great hosts – the Quilt Association of Wales, who just happen to make great cakes. Here are some pics of last year’s event.
