100 + visitors so far!

Textile Tales is well under way, with our first two oral history events undertaken at Ruddington Framework Knitters Museum and Mansfield Museum, then 4 successful ‘roadshow’ events in September with our specially commissioned Textile Tales  vehicle at Belper, Borrowash, Long Eaton and Loughborough.  So far, we have had almost 100 visitors to our events, and carried out nearly 30 recordings with ex-textile workers throughout the region and  we’re not done yet!  We have 3 more events coming up in October and November at Erewash Museum, John Smedleys and Lakeside Arts at University of Nottingham so spread the world and come and share your textile stories with us.
