Manchester Antique Textiles Fair - Sunday 30th April
« on: March 14, 2017, 11:47:26 AM »
This event is run annually by the Textile Society in the Armitage Centre which is south of Manchester city centre. I've only been once but it should be an interesting mix of antiquarian clothing and home textiles, some fabrics and haberdashery (though not all that much - it was not really loads of vintage fabric by the metre the year I went). Might be an interesting day out if you are in the area.

Well I went to this this afternoon and was very restrained! TBH it is a bit overwhelming but lots of lovely stuff.
