Last Sunday I visited the Antique Textile fair in Manchester which is run by The Textile Society. It is always a really good fair with a good range of textiles, and there are some bargains to had if you go searching. I picked up a few things to add to my collection. I am splitting these images into a few posts because I have got quite a few to share, the first part is mainly English and French, cheap bundles of worn fabrics. I don't think I will be doing anything with them other than using them for inspiration, although I thought maybe I could possibly make a quilt out of them but I would have to do a lot of patching !!
