Heritage clothing sewing group
Following the successful workshop at the end of last month we have now embarked on a project to make replica 19th century clothing. These will be then be used for educational activities and open ovents.
The initial workshop in October was very popular, with 15 people attending and another 6 joining the follow up workshops. This workshop was a full day, with Sarah Thursfield showing us what the Flaxmill apprentice children would have worn.
We began with bonnets, hand-stitching very fine seams, one or two finished on the day.
The group plans to meet monthly at the Museum in Shrewsbury for a morning to increase our collection of clothes. Our next venture is pinafores, then boys’ caps.
