Compton Verney textile fair . November 4th
NOW IN ITS SEVENTH YEAR, THE TEXTILE FAIR WILL BE BIGGER AND BETTER THAN EVER.
Featuring a wide range of textile merchants, makers and designers,this is the perfect opportunity to discover something new, and buy a unique handmade item in preparation for the festive season
I'll have a wide range of ecoprinted textiles for sale, some of them at special Christmas prices.There will also be details of my forthcoming workshops, and a chance to make 'earlybird' reservations for them
In addition to stalls, there will be displays by the Solihull and Leamington Embroiderers’ Guild and a collection of beautifully made wedding dresses in the chapel
The Textile Fair is included in a DAY TICKET admission.
In addition to the textile fair,there is a wonderful permanent collection in the gallery, with a particularly strong folk art and oriental collection. There will also be a special exhibition focusing on the childrens' illustrator Quentin Blake, who illustrated Roald Dahl's books. There is a great cafe, a superb restaurant (booking recommended), wonderful grounds to explore, and disabled access is easy, as there is a shuttle bus from the car park
