What I Saw and What I Bought at Teddington Textile Fair

Yesterday a friend and I went to the Textile Fair in Teddington.
These were my two favourite stands:

Linda Howells Arty Fizz 

Linda does wonderful patchwork decorated with embroidery, beads, buttons and other, lovely quirky things.

She also makes bags and books dying fabric with leaves, onion skins, embossing and fusing.things into her designs. 

Jennifer M Taylor

Jennifer's stall was like an old-fashioned sewing and haberdashery store, full of vintage fabrics, hats, buttons, trims and clothes.  I regret that I did not buy the darning egg.  My mother had one and they are useful even if you don't darn socks!

What I bought

This roll of fabric - three pieces of more than a meter each.  As well as a piece of vintage upholstery fabric.

Here they are.  Left to right: Vintage red upholstery fabric; cream silk  with embroidered leaft pattern which will become sitting room cushions; black taffeta with embroidered black and brown fronds and red and taupe floral brocade for evening bags.


  1. Lovely new fabrics. Glad you had a good visit to Teddington. xx

  2. Dubai is popular for its richness, royalty and majesty in every sphere of life. Be it clothing, jewellery or home decors; luxurious set up attracts every shopaholic to enter Saga World mall and shop ceaselessly. Every small thing emanates oodles of affluence and magnificence at Saga World, especially the textile shops at Dubai. Buy ethnic, traditional, formal beach and, funky wear from the mall and flaunt them your way.
