Planned and designed by Stephen Bennett, former Shows Director at the Royal Horticultural Society, and supported by The Savill Garden and The Valley Gardens at Windsor Great Park, the Ascot Spring Garden Show promises top quality horticulture, unsurpassed service and state-of the-art facilities at the historic racecourse. 

 I shall have a  stand there exhibiting and selling ecoprinted textiles

Supported by The Savill Garden and The Valley Gardens at Windsor Great Park, the Ascot Spring Garden Show promises top quality horticulture, unsurpassed service and state-of the-art facilities at the historic racecourse.The  dining options look absolutely delicious. Many of the stands are  under cover. so it should be a great event even if the weather is  unkind.

Compton Verney textile fair . November 4th



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
