No, not a Roxy Music reference!   This Friday, Talent for Textiles is holding a sale at a new venue.  The Avalon Textile and Decorative Fair will be held at the Abbey Barn in Glastonbury, Somerset.  You can read all about the venue on Linda's blog here or Elizabeth's blog here.

I have been buying special bits to take with me.  Here is a little preview for you.

A beautiful silk devore dress from the 1920's.  It has a matching silk chiffon and devore jacket and very beautiful beaded detail.

A wonderful find, this is a vintage Master's gown, made from black taffeta.

Lots of lovely new fabrics including some Liberty, William Morris's Strawberry Thief

Some marching soldiers

Dekoplus children's fabric


1970's folky florals

Some pretty fat quarters

Pussy Willow

More florals

 1950's Prom dresses

The yellow one has a matching hat!

Vintage Fairs

I have been away for some time, life has been very busy!

There have been a lot of fairs lately and I have had stalls at a few.  I decided to give my crates a lick of paint and lined them with vintage fabric and wallpaper to freshen them up, and   I have lots of new stock for this season, so it all looks a little different.

The next fair will be in a new venue, the Abbey Barn at Glastonbury's Rural Museum (see right hand side bar for details).  I hope you can make it, there will be lots of great stalls there and some beautiful textiles to tempt you.

For those of you who can't make it there is 10% off all stock on my website until the 22nd May. Just add the word MAY11 (in capitals) to the coupon code box on checkout to benefit from this discount.

I have added lots of lovely new fabrics so do take a look.
