MORE than 500 craft enthusiasts enjoyed exhibits, stalls and workshops during an annual textile event.

The one-day Braintree Textile Fair took place at town hall, museum and the Warner Textile Archive and was held as part of the town's textile season.

On top of the fair, the season also includes the Power of Stitch exhibition, tours and a school project called Braintree’s Big Stitch.

The Power of Stitch, by the East Anglian Stitch Textiles group, includes 14 artists and looks at nature, industry and society.

It runs until June 29 at Braintree Museum.
