FREE ENTRY to exhibition and sale of fair trade textiles

Our 2021 theme: Crossing Borders | Expert guest speaker to be confirmed

Norfolk holds a special place in our hearts when it comes to World Textile Day. ‘Why’s that,’ you wonder. Well, before our World Textile Days really took off, Magie and Bob used to take the African Fabric Shop ‘on safari’ to Norfolk. We always had a blast and even made the local press a few times.

We’re planning a full programme including guest speaker, exhibits and our expert world textiles traders.

However – with COVID safety at the top of our agenda – we all have to be flexible. Official restrictions and common sense will determine the exact programme closer to the day. Please check here before leaving for the venue.

Don’t miss World Textile Day East in Mundford. See you there!
