Stroud International Textiles Festival triumph

The fourth Stroud International Textiles Festival finishes today - it is a triumph and huge credit must go to Lizzi Walton and her team - see their website here.

Photos: yesterday at Museum in the Park where they also had free swingball - great fun!

It has had wonderful events and exhibitions - I've only managed to catch a handful of them - yesterday I revisited the Museum exhibition with family - great stuff indeed. Talking to Lizzi there, I hear that it has also led to significant increases in visitor numbers to the museum and indeed the town - no wonder - this event truly puts Stroud on the map internationally when it comes to Textiles and builds on our reputation as a centre of arts and creativity. Big thanks to all involved for creating so many good things to see, be inspired and more.
