A place for the upper echelons of 18th century society, The Assembly Rooms in Bath was home to elite soirees in its day. This was a building of opulence, where guests gathered to drink tea, play cards and to dance the night away with live music. Designed by John Wood, the building was purpose-built to indulge the extravagant social lives of the upper classes.
The team behind the cult magazine Selvedge bring a curated collection of fifty merchants and makers to Bath. Our exhibitors sell a range of rare vintage fabrics, covetable haberdashery and skilfully handmade textile treasures. The fair offers the perfect opportunity to meet makers, catch up with old friends and pick up that special something. Please note entry after 1pm will be quieter than entry at the start of the day.
