Exhibition - Redditch Needle Companies

3rd February to 1st March 2015

The exhibition looked at some of the famous and not so famous Redditch and other needle making companies through the items that they produced, including some of the beautiful needle cases and the records, photos and ephemera they left behind. There was also on display some unusual items not normally associated with the needle companies. Amongst the rarely seen exhibits was a 'Drunkard's Chair', original portraits of needle makers, some fantastic needle cases, sewing machines (of course!), historic pictures, maps, drawings, Worshipful Company of Needle makers memorabilia and much more.
