Back to our roots in Norfolk

The very idea of World Textile Day was hatched in Norfolk when Magie Relph and Bob Irwin took the African Fabric Shop ‘on safari’ there back in 2005. As more world textiles experts joined the team, we outgrew our first home in Mileham and found the perfect alternative in Mundford. We always get a great welcome there. Join us and and our SPECIAL GUEST SPEAKERS Sue and David Richardson. Here are some pics from World Textile Day East in 2017.
