Knitting & Crochet Guild Collection Tours

June 9, 2019

The KCG is a national organisation which aims to educate, innovate and preserve the crafts of hand and machine knitting and crochet. The KCG is a member organisation with members around the UK, and about 30 local branches, including one in Huddersfield.

The KCG was founded in 1978 and the collection started in 1991. The KCG collection is now housed in Britannia Mill in Slaithwaite, having moved there in February 2019. It comprises several thousand items of textiles, publications, tools, and yarns associated with hand and machine knitting and crochet in the UK, dating back to the mid 19th century.

On Sunday 9 June take a tour of the collection at 11am, 12 midday, 2pm and 3pm.
Numbers are limited. Meet in Wild About Wool 15 mins before the time of the tour and you will be met and taken to the collection close by.

You can visit the collection all year round by prior arrangement. To find out more, click here.
