In view of a more hopeful start to 2022, the Knitting History Forum has organised a tour of the Framework Knitters Museum at Ruddington near Nottingham on Saturday 19th March 2022.
We will meet in the cafe at 11am ready for our tour at 11.30am. After the tour we will adjourn to the village for a late lunch at a venue yet to be confirmed.
We still have some spaces available, an opportunity to tour this gem of a museum with like-minded company. Ruddington is a working museum, with original knitting frames (the precursors of modern knitting machines) still in working order as well as a collection of early knitted items. They also portray the lives of framework knitters and their families, an aspect of textile history often neglected.
Our tireless Membership Secretary, Tricia Basham, will need to inform the museum of numbers and make lunch arrangements, so please email Tricia by Friday 18th February 2022 if you wish to take this special tour and afterwards join us for lunch.
