Illustrated Talk: A History of the East Midlands Knitting Industry
Nottingham Industrial Museum
26th July at 6pm - 8pm


To celebrate the 2017 Festival of Archaeology, Nottingham Industrial Museum is pleased to invite you to an illustrated talk by Colin Moss on 'The History of the East Midlands Knitting Industry'.

Colin is one of Nottingham Industrial Museum's Volunteer Guides and his talk will describe the history of the knitting industry from earliest times up to the present day. He will shows how the East Midlands played a pivotal role in that industry and how today's world wide knitting industry has its foundations in technology developed in the East Midlands.

Colin will use as examples historic buildings in the East Midlands, some of the knitting machines in use and on show at various museums in the East Midlands together with some very modern machines in use in today's East Midlands knitting industry. He will also describe the related social history of the "stockingers" who were the foundation of the knitting industry up until mid Victorian times.

The duration of the talk is approximately 1 hr 20 min and the museum galleries will be available for you explore.
