The Textile Society AGM & Conference * London * 2-4 November 2012

Last year the Textile Society's AGM and Conference in Oxford was packed - and no surprise it was seam to seam interest. The conference venue for this year is going to be the Wellcome Collection Conference Centre - it is directly opposite Euston station. However, this state-of-the-art venue only seats 80 delegates, so book now in order to avoid disappointment. Click here for more details. This is the programme for the Conference weekend:
