The Selvedge Fair, Charleston Farmhouse 14 October
CHARLESTON, FIRLE, LEWES, EAST SUSSEX, BN8 6LL
Saturday 14 OCTOBER 11-5PM, Entrance £5
The team behind the cult magazine Selvedge brings a curated collection of fifty merchants and makers to Charleston. Our exhibitors sell a range of rare vintage fabrics, covetable haberdashery and skillfully handmade textile treasures. The fair offers the perfect opportunity to meet makers, catch up with old friends, and pick up that special something.
The fair will take place in a marquee and barns in the grounds of the former home of the Bloomsbury Group. Charleston opened its doors to the public in 1986, 70 years after Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant moved in. This house, with its renowned hand-paintedinterior, was home and inspiration to the many artists, writers and thinkers of the Bloomsbury Group.
