As Autumn approaches, on Sunday, September 7, The Glenesk Folk Museum is encouraging everyone to get out their knitting, weaving, sewing, spinning and head for a warm welcome in the hills.

‘Keeping The Thread’ will runs from 11 a.m. to 4.30 p.m. and will be part of Angus Heritage week.

Maria MacDonnell, from the Glenesk Folk Museum at The Retreat visitor centre, said: “We are inviting people of all ages and level of skill to bring their sewing, knitting, needlework, embroidery, mending, spinning, darning, tapestry, altering, crochet for a day of working together, chatting and sharing ideas

“Spinner Kay Anderson will be at The Retreat all day showing and sharing the fascinating skills she has developed throughout her life. We hope that the building, and the grounds too if it’s sunny, will be full of people working in different ways with all kinds of threads, being with friends and making new ones. There will be a free hot or cold drink for anyone who shows a member of staff what they are making, while local historians Gilbert and Agnes Lowden will be on hand to unravel historical threads in the intriguing story of Glenesk’.
