Preserving textile workers’ life stories for future generations
Did you work in the textile industry in Ruddington or the local area? Perhaps you worked at
Cooper and Roe, Malmic Lace or Beeva Garments? If the answer is “yes” and you worked, or are still working in the textile industry, we need your stories!
Why not come along and meet old colleagues and share your unique experience at our roadshow event? We want to hear from everyone involved from dyers and machine operators, workers and management from the boardroom to the shop floor, as we are planning to save and share these stories for future generations.
The Textile Tales project is holding a roadshow event in Ruddington so we can meet you and let you know about this exciting initiative. We’d also love it if you have any photographs or items that you may want to share with us. There’ll also be an opportunity to have your photo taken on a historic knitting frame.
If you’d like to get involved, please come along to our event on Friday 28th June 2019 from 11am to 4pm at The Framework Knitters Museum on Chapel Street. Refreshments will be provided.
The Textile Tales is led by Nottingham Trent University with support from the National Lottery as well as local museums and businesses. To find out more, please visit www.textiletales.co.uk.
