 Sue Phipps  -  Framework Knitters Museum Projects 
BADAS had a most enjoyable and interesting "Sketching Group" visit to the Framework Knitters Museum in Wigston some time ago. Sue Phipps is a volunteer there and has produced some lovely pictures for them to use in their Booklet and Cards - Some examples of her pictures are shown below. Thankyou for sharing them with us Sue.
Here is an extract from the museum website.
The museum is unique, because when the last master hosier, Edgar Carter died in 1952, the workshop was locked and left. Inside on the ground floor were eight hand frames for making gloves, mitts and fancy ribbed tops for golf hose, together with all the moulds and tools associated with each machine. There is a large garden, well stocked with flowers, shrubs and fruit trees. The "Yarn Room" (light refreshments available) and small shop complete the museum.
