Sometimes I’m Just a Bit Slow…

I was reading through the first part of my OCA Textiles course and I was curious to see what textile archives we have here in Yorkshire (you know, the county with the heritage for the textile manufacturing). It was only then that it struck me a) how much we have here in the way of textiles, and b) how dim I can be!

For example, one short search went as follows:-

Sunnybank Mill Archive

Bradford Textile Society

Huddersfield Textile Society

Bradford College Textile Archive

Yorkshire Fashion Archive

West Yorkshire Textile Heritage Project

and this one has got me really excited:

ULITA at Leeds University

with links to further places to explore here

As I said, a bit slow on the uptake, but I get there in the end! So much to explore, and up to 12 years to do it in…
