Ever walked past the old Templeton Carpet Factory and been curious about the women who worked there? Did you or your Mum, Granny, or Auntie work in Scotland’s textile industry?

Come and share stories and hear some of the women’s voices through recent oral history recordings. Materials from the archives of Stoddard-Templeton and Paisley’s Coats & Clarks will also be visiting for the day.
