‘A Stitch in Time’ will be the next exhibition at Goole Museum -  a collection of new works by members of the Embroiderers’ Guild. All the pieces created were inspired by items from Goole Museum’s collection.

The exhibition opening at the museum will be on Saturday, 9 November from 1pm to 3pm. There will be a chance to meet the members of the group who will be mingling with visitors, ready to chat about their work and the inspiration behind it.

It was nearly two years ago that this group of talented ladies visited the museum for a textile handling day. They looked at things from the museum collection, took photographs and exchanged ideas.

It was at this session that the curator, Debbie Hardy, suggested they consider creating items directly influenced by their experience. Debbie said : “I offered them the opportunity to hold an exhibition at the museum in the future. I thought it would be great for the group to create and display new work, especially as our collection is the source of their inspiration. We will also have the collection items on show, ranging from First World War postcards, dresses and camisoles to table runners and doilies.’

The event is free and there is lift access and full accessibility. Light refreshments will also be available. Goole Museum is located in Carlisle Street.

The exhibition will run until 18 January, 2020. Opening times are :

Tuesday to Friday 10am to 5pm

Wednesday 10am to 7pm

Saturday 9am to 4pm

Closed for lunch 12 noon to 12.30pm (Wednesdays 1.30 to 2pm)
