I love the fashion textile museum . It has exhibitions that larger museums wouldn’t cover . It hilights designers that deserve credit but not focused on in bigger exhibitions . I love you can get so close to the clothing . Much more personal experience of learning about fashion history than I find from bigger museum exhibitions . It’s really offers a new a different experience of learning which I’d miss if it wasn’t available

The Fashion Industry is a huge part of the UK economy and we need to have resources to encourage and educate the next generation so that the future of this industry is a bright one

My 16 year old daughter is studying Textiles for GCSE and A level in September. Its such an important space for learning about our cultural heritage. We live in wales but visit the museum when we can and have attended virtual workshops in lockdown. Please stay open!.

Long live colour, texture and pattern, the wonderful world of textiles that is The Fashion and Textiles Museum, a resource for many, a gift to all, thank you Zandra for what you created XXX

Interior design and dressmaking have always been important threads in my life, finding creativity and relaxation, whilst I chose a different professional path. My daughter is now immersed in textile design. It is an important facet in our lives. This is an opportunity to ensure that a valuable resource for students and society is not lost.
