The sewing team is composed of volunteers who co-ordinate with the Museum staff and others on site to design and create a wide variety of products. Some of our activities are:
- providing products for the Museum Online shop and Abbey Medieval Festival stall
- creating costumes for various fund-raising events, either drafting a pattern or using commercial patterns.
- creating and maintaining a costume collection for use at the annual Abbey Medieval Festival and Pemberley Event.
- Using a variety of fabrics and materials in an authentic Medieval style
You should have a basic knowledge of sewing, however any specific skills can be learned as needed.
The sewing room operates on Tuesdays only. If you would like to visit us please let us know and we can arrange for you to meet the volunteers. This will give you a better idea of what we do and if it would be something you would be interested in.
