paisley patter

Paisley Patter are looking for anyone willing to volunteer their time for the fabulous Battle of Prestonpans Tapestry Exhibition at Paisley’s Anchor Mill (The Atrium), Thread Street.

We need people who could cover the following shifts:

Wednesday (1st), Thursday (2nd) or Friday (3rd May), 5pm-8pm.  There will be one other volunteer with you so you are not alone.

Sunday 5th May, 1pm – help with dismantling the tapestry and loading it into Arran’s van – some lifting of boxes etc required, (I’m a girl and I managed to do it so no wimping out!)

It’s a fantastic way to get involved in your community and meet new people.

The tapestry is world-famous so having it here in Paisley is a great thing for our town.

Paisley Patter is a project which involves the stitching of the Paisley Panel of The Great Tapestry of Scotland, also the gathering of stories from anyone who has one to tell about Paisley in the 1930s. We meet 1-3pm Wednesdays and Saturdays and you would be made most welcome at any of our meetings. This week’s meetings are at Anchor Mill, Thread Street and after that we meet at the Thread Mill, Seedhill Road.
