We have just returned from a very crafty holiday in beautiful Tideswell, Derbyshire where, amongst the many hours we spent on crochet, we visited the nearby fantastic Masson Mill, a wonderful working textile museum where we saw fabric being woven in front of our eyes on traditional machines! We also had a chance to view the world's largest bobbin collection which was, to us, pure heaven! We fell in love with the museum, preserved just as it was with no frills. It was completely unspoilt and filled from floor to ceiling with textile goodness! Our photos hopefully show you how fantastic it is - well worth a visit!
Oh, and we couldn't resist buying some of the yellow fabric we saw being woven! Now... what to make with it?
