Kiddermister Carpet Museum - Page 49(The clubs fortyninth meeting since chartered)

Evening Visit, Demonstrations and Talk

A most interesting visit was enjoyed by a dozen members of our Active Black Country Past Round Table (41) Club.

Possibly the most knowledgable speaker on the subject of Kidderminster Carpets in the word Mr Melvyn Thompson who has written a number of books on the field was kind enough to give us all a wonderful taster of what the industry was and still is about. Accompanied by a strong team of experts who powered up the machines and showed us real Carpet actually being made on these classic showpieces. We also had a privilaged demonstration of the hand looms and enjoyed many other exhibits during our private showing. What a treat. Organised by Honorary Chairman Jonathan Lees he thanked the staff of the museum for opening this Tuesday evening 19th March 2013 especially for us. Most members stated they would be going back with others for a more detailed visit in the future. Afterward we had the odd drink at the Boars Head, a unique experience in itelf with wonderful crazy staff and friendly patrons.
