This was my first ever visit to a vintage textile fair. It was held at the Warner Textile Archive in Braintree Essex. The doors opened at 11.00am to a large crowd of people who like me were looking for old vintage textiles. Also on display were textiles from the Warner archives and arts and craft.
This was one of my favourite I loved the pattern and the striking colours
This print was used for the poster i think it looks great.
This collection of silk threads were used in the textile world.
A collection of brightly coloured prints
I purchased these pieces of vintage quilting. I think i will make them into pincushions.
This book of samples gave a good record of vintage textiles.
More lovely prints.
I purchased a stamp similar to one of these in the shape of a leaf.
I loved this silk scarf, but didn't like the price.
Love the striking shapes in these photos
I had a lovely time at the Textile Fair and came away with lots of ideas and enthusiasm to have a go at block printing. I would like to visit the museum again, but not when the fair is on.
