The museum has now reopened for the new year. We have all had a long rest over December and January and now we are back. Our volunteers will now be in the museum every Wednesday and Saturday from 12-4pm.
Saturday 13th May 2017 – 2pm to 6pm
Join us this Saturday between 2pm and 6pm for our “Try a needlecraft” event as part of the Voluntary Arts Festival.
This event is free and all materials will be supplied.
We have fabric bobbins to stitch, colour and make sparkle. You can also learn to knit a stitch. We will also have beads to make sparkle and yarns to create with.
All are welcome. The museum will open at 12 noon as normal. Parking is available at the Mile End Mill. Permit not required on Saturday.
We are very pleased to say that Glasgow Airport Flight Path Fund continues to support us with a second grant for the purchase of two new display cabinets for the museum. The new cabinets arrived just before Christmas 2016, and are now on the Mezzanine Level of the Mile End Mill and over the next few weeks items from our collection will be displayed within them.
We are continuing to seek funding for three further cabinets that will be mounted on the wall, between our existing display cabinets to enable us to display a larger proportion of our collection.
We recently received a grant from Glasgow Airport Flight Path Fund of just under £2000.
With the grant we have purchased 2 new display cabinets, a 21″ Touchscreen PC to display images and videos on and 2 devices for recording oral history from visitors.
We would like to thank Glasgow Airport Flight Path Fund for the award of the grant.
Paisley Thread Mill Museum re-opened on Saturday 21st May 2016.
Our new location on the Mezzanine and 1st floor corridor within the Abbey Mil Business Centre is accessible via stair or a lift for our disabled visitors.
Please enter via the main entrance of the Abbey Mill Business Centre and to the left you will see the stairs to Museum.
Our Stitching Group also restarts on the 21st May during opening hours, and will continue on a Wednesday and Saturday 12 -4 pm.
The Museum will be open on a Wednesday and Saturday 12 – 4pm until September.
