July Meeting Jim Gaffney on the silk route

11 07 2013

We enjoyed a fascinating talk with images from Jim on his recent ‘gap year’ trip on the silk route.  He showed us a wide range of textiles and garments that he and his wife Diane had sourced along the route.  Everyone was completely absorbed by the talk and the only chatter came as fabric was passed around the room and quality and techniques were discussed!  If you haven’t heard Jim talk then you should definitely book him or visit his shop Textile Traders in Bishop’s Castle.  Website is here:
