A Family of Threads:  The Legacy of Christian Shaw

Welcome to 'A Family of Threads' a project by Paisley Thread Mill Museum to research the origins and development of the Paisley and Renfrewshire Thread Industry from 1722 to the rise of the  United Thread Mills of J & P Coats and Clark & Co., Paisley's world dominant cotton thread manufacturers.

The project is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund: Stories Stones and Bones Fund as part of the Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology 2017.

Over the next few weeks we will begin to develop this website.  Presently the site holds basic information on our plans, along with contact details.

We are seeking to engage with schools, care homes, hospices and any other groups who  would like to get involved.

Please use the contact us page to tell us about how you would like to get involved!
