This month Selvedge is launching its first Advent Festival – a week of textile-inspired events and festive workshops for Christmas shoppers and makers who are looking for inspiration for an artisan holiday. To celebrate, we’re giving away a Selvedge Goody Bag, which includes a gorgeous pair of felt slippers by Huopaliike Lahtinen, tickets to the Selvedge Merchants’ Fair and the Makers’ Fair and a copy of Selvedge magazine. Find out how to enter below…
Opening the Selvedge Advent Festival on 26 November will be The Merchants’ Fair, an international textile market where collectors, curators and connoisseurs will sell fine fabrics and haberdashery from all over the world – from vintage lace to kantha quilts and indigo treasures. During the week, the Selvedge store will be home to a series of festive workshops where participants will learn how to block-print wrapping paper, letterpress greetings cards, make festive wreaths, decorate biscuits with embroidery-inspired icing and create Hungarian hand-cut felt appliqué Christmas stockings. Wrapping up the week-long festival, The Makers’ Fair on 3 December will bring together a curated selection of designer-makers selling their hand-crafted wares.
The lucky winner of our Advent Festival competition will receive a special Selvedge goody bag containing one pair of tickets to both the Merchants’ and Makers’ Fairs, the current issue of Selvedge magazine and a pair of Huopaliike Lahtinen felt slippers from the Selvedge store worth £52.95.
Selvedge is also offering Folksy subscribers 2-for-1 entry to the Merchants’ and Makers’ Fairs** and 50% off a three-issue continuous subscription*** to Selvedge magazine using the code 16FOLKSYSV. More information about the festival and magazine can be found at www.selvedge.org where you can also book your tickets and order your subscription.
