The Macclesfield Silk Museums Trust

I’ve just discovered the Silk Museums Trust, and will be back with more news from them later.  Here’s an upcoming event in April for those interested in costume



Silk: 200 years of Silk Fashion
Saturday 5th April 2014

Lucy Adlington from the History Wardrobe will be putting on a one off costume event exploring the stories of the women who wove, sewed and wore silk. It will feature a selection of real and replica outfits, some which have never before been shown at History Wardrobe events.

This is a one off event, and promises to be a fascinating afternoon.

Start time 12.30pm
Tickets £10/£8 members of the Friends.
