Forget about queueing for parking at Alexandra Palace, or the NEC for that matter. No charges for parking and less than half the entrance fee! Why not visit Textiles in Focus in Cottenham near Cambridge instead! There will be an exhibition that’s worth seeing, lots of demonstrations, and, of course, good traders. All the suppliers are specialists, so they know all about their products and there is good food and drink to sustain you too…… How can you resist? Dates? 15th – 17th February. There are also workshops and a lecture.
More information can be found here, I’ll be there with Winifred Cottage, so please come and say ‘hi’ when you visit. On that note, if you have any special requirements, for instance Kunin Felt, make sure you let me know in good time beforehand. I won’t be taking much of that with me, and may have limited stocks of other things too.
This is a photograph from last year. It’s a lovely show, and well worth a visit. Hope to see you there.

Wish it was closer… Have a good show 🙂
Wish I had known about this one well in advance as I go to Dd’s quite a lot and can manage a train ride. However it does take planning! Travel to the capital takes 4 hours, 5 door to door, if I’m lucky and the trains are kind to me. 🙂 I do know this was posted 2013!
That was a good show 🙂 I’m not sure if it’s still going on – and actually not that easy by public transport. Brockenhurst in the New Forest is easy by train – end of April each year. mail me if you would like details for next year.
New Forest quite a way from New Malden!
lol, but the journey is easier than Cottenham – and probably half the time 😉
