Wednesday 18 October ( 13:00 - 16:00 )

Clydebank Town Hall , 5 Hall St, Clydebank G81 1UB

Join the team who look after the Singer Sewing Machine Collection to celebrate Singer history in Clydebank, share your memories & make tactile crafts which give sensory stimulation. Yours to keep or ‘create to donate’ to a local care home.

There will be a variety of sewing activities for all levels of ability, with opportunities to create small items made with buttons, fabric and glue through to sensory cushions using sewing machines for the more ambitious. Participants will also be encouraged to share their memories of using Singer sewing machines and of the Singer Factory in Clydebank. Heritage staff and volunteers will be on hand to record these memories as part of the Heritage Team’s programme of oral history collection.

Free event

Free tea, coffee & biscuits

Materials provided

Sessions are drop-in but please let us know if you are planning to bring a group so we can make sure we have enough refreshments for you.

Singer Sensory Sewing is a free 3-hour drop-in activity aimed at older people and residents of local care homes but we welcome all members of the community who would like to come along and share stories, learn from other generations and get crafty over a cuppa.
