Thursday 4 May ( 18:30 - 19:30 )

Clydebank Museum & Art Gallery , Reception Hall

This talk is part of a wider programme of activity associated with Clydebank Museum & Art Gallery's current exhibition: A Stitch in Time - the Story of the Sewing Machine. Access to the exhibition will be available in the hour prior to the talk commencing.

A Stitch in Time - the Story of the Sewing Machine tells the story of the sewing machine from its invention in the mid-19th century to its far-reaching economic and social impact throughout the remainder of that century and into the next. Alongside examples of sewing machines by various manufacturers are displayed some of the garments and accessories that these ingenious machines were used to make – helping to illustrate just how significant an invention the sewing machine was.

Lin's talk will explore the impact that the invention of the sewing machine had on the creation of historical dress and theatrical costumes. A selection of costumes will be available to help illustrate this fascinating talk.
