The Big Textile Show…..

I’ve just started packing ahead of tomorrows drive to Leicester Racecourse for the set up of the Big Textile Show. It’s always a fabulous weekend with wonderful exhibits including textile art, beading, felting, lace making, spinning, wire work, etc, etc. For those wanting a bit of retail therapy there will be more than thirty different traders as well as a variety of workshops offering everything from learning to Crochet to Intricate Metal Weaving and everything in between. Add to all this a well stocked, reasonably priced food hall and free parking, what’s not to like!

The show opens at 9.30am on Saturday 29th & Sunday 30th Oct.

The Big Textile Show…..

Last weekend went in a flash! I was exhibiting for the third year running at The Big Textile Show which is held over two days at Leicester Racecourse. This show has a wonderful, friendly atmosphere and is big enough to provide a great day out but isn’t too large that you feel worn out by the time you’ve visited all the stalls!

My stall at this years Show

The exhibitions, which were displayed on the first floor above the food hall, included Feltmaking, Weaving, Beading, Quilting, Lace Making, Rug Making as well as paper sculptures and so much more! There was a room full of inspiring work to fire up the imagination as well as many of the items being for sale.

The trade stalls were located in a separate building, which unfortunately I didn’t get chance to visit this year. From what I was hearing there was a terrific variety of stalls and lots of opportunity to increase the size of your stash! These are just a tiny few of this years traders…..

Thanks to everyone who stopped by to say hello and for all the wonderful feedback given by visitors to my stall. The Big Textile Show is always held over the last weekend in October so be sure to put the date in your diary ready for 2020.

My next show will be at The Quilt & Stitch Village, Uttoxeter Racecourse from 17th – 19th April so hope to see some of you there!
