AN EXHIBITION OF WELSH COSTUMES AND BLANKETS

I recently visited an Exhibition of Welsh costumes and blankets, in the beautiful little town of Presteigne, in Mid Wales.

It was a magnificent display of old Welsh dresses, traditional Welsh shawls, skirts and workmen's shoes, and also baskets of Welsh wool, a Welsh spinning wheel and a couple of hand-made dolls, to name but a few.
