This weekend the Selvedge Fair will arrive at Bath, bringing with it an abundance of beautiful craft and artisanal textiles. With 50 of the UK’s finest merchants and makers who were carefully selected for the event, our exhibitors will sell a range of rare vintage fabrics, covetable haberdashery and skillfully handmade textile treasures. Our pick of the fair’s highlights is the charming drop-in jersey flower workshop, put together in collaboration with the founder of Alabama Chanin, Natalie Chanin herself. imageresizer With cotton jersey strips provided at the fair, visitors can create their own beautiful blooms of fabric chrysanthemums, perfect for pretty spring homeware.
