Textiles in Focus

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.



That’s it for this year!

How lovely to see so many of you at Cottenham.  Textiles in Focus is always good, and this year was no exception.  Several groups organised coaches, which meant no driving, and this was good for those travelling a distance.

This poor photograph was taken during setup, and you can see that we were blinded by the sun at times!!  Not only was it a chance to meet customers it was also a time to socialise with friends.  Details of next year will come at a later date, but make sure you book early for the workshops when they are announced.

Now, it’s onwards and upwards.  Teaching at Alston Hall and Sticky Fingers is next…..  Not long now.  Don’t forget to check out the giveaway, if you haven’t already entered, it will be drawn on March 8th.

Don’t Delay! Do it Today

Textile in Focus is in February.  Details are ready now, and if you want to book your workshop etc you really need to do it NOW!
