The highlight among highlights of our 12th World Textile Day in Llanidloes will be a presentation by Angela Thompson. Angela’s textile credentials are truly inspiring. An inveterate traveller and collector, she’s written seven textile related books and lectures extensively. Not only is Angela informative – she tells a great yarn, as well!

Don’t miss World Textile Day Wales 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 from previous World Textile Days in Llanidloes.
