The Society has recently granted the Award to two recipients: The Museum of Carpet (Kidderminster) and Sheffield's Kelham Island Museum. The funding has also been increased - propositions are welcome.
A 2nd Newsletter from the Society that includes 80 Years of Cavity Magnetron from WW2 Radar to Microwave Ovens, the story of Carpet Looms in Kidderminster, Mr Tetin's beloved canaries & more web-links, books etc.
The tremendous noise of power looms weaving carpet fills the Museum of Carpet in Kidderminster each time the volunteer weavers run these giant machines. This is not an easy job and requires years of training. They are not simply weaving a flat cloth, but create a three dimensional product which is velvety and luxurious.
