The Framework Knitters Museum is inviting local residents, businesses and community groups to have their say on development plans that are set to transform the site as we know it today.
As reported in The Rudd in February 2019, the museum has been granted initial National Lottery support for an exciting new project called, “A Right Good Yarn”. Now, the project team are busy developing their ideas – and they’re keen to gather your thoughts and feedback!
If you’d like to find out about the museum’s plans and share your views, a five minute online survey is now live at www.frameworkknittersmuseum.org.uk (you can access it from the News section). The survey will be open until Sunday 25th August 2019, after which one lucky respondent, who’ll be picked at random, will win £100 in cash!
Visit the team at Ruddington Village Market
The project team will be running a stall at the next Ruddington Village Market on the Saturday 3rd August from 9am to 12:30pm, so local people can find out more about the museum’s aspirations and how to get involved. Paper copies of the survey will also be available to collect from the stall.

You can also like our Facebook page (search for “Framework Knitters Museum” and follow us on Twitter @FrameKnitter, where we’ll be posting updates and photos as the project progresses.
Could you be our next Trustee?
The Framework Knitters Museum is looking for new Trustees to join our Board. It’s an exciting time to get involved, with our redevelopment plans just starting to take shape. Ideally, we’re looking for people who live in Ruddington or very nearby who can act as key-holders in case of alarm call-outs (these are rare though!)
People from all backgrounds and walks of life are welcome to join us, although individuals with business-related skills are especially welcome as we work towards making the museum more sustainable.
To find out more, please contact the Chair of the Trustees, Julian Ellis, at Julian.email@example.com or on 01636 831 165.
