Once up a time there was you, your favourite textile and your story. From Granny's old teddy to your child's Christening robe, textiles hold memories for us all and The Bowes Museum would love to hear more about the textiles that matter to you and record your special story. This is a relaxed and informal story sharing day, where sessions will be filmed. Our conservator Cecilia will be able to give advice on how to clean and care for your textile while preserving it for the future.
