Oral History

Your memories of working in the Paisley thread mills and Coats are vital to the success of this year long project.  We want to speak to as many former (and current) employees of Coats in Paisley, Scotland, the UK and world wide!

We are now ready to start talking to former and current employees of the Paisley Thread Mills.

We have some names already, but want to reach as many people as possible.  We can interview people on a Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday afternoon, by appointment.  Each interview will be recorded, and a transcript of the interview will be made for publication on our website and a final publication.  In some cases we will also use snips of the audio file on our website as well.

If you would like to talk with us please fill in the form below.
