Follow the Threads of Time

The Thread of Time Exhibit illustrates the rich local history of the textile industry. Remembering the efforts of those who have called Braintree District home, the Threads of Time Exhibit highlights their endeavors in the textile industry. The 20th century’s fabric production was greatly influenced by 200 years of innovative work by the Braintree district. Located inside the Braintree Museum, this permanent exhibit features fabrics from the extensive history of this area.


Composed by the Members of EAST, the Threads of Time Exhibit consists of 12 panels. Each panel was prepared by one of the members, featuring aspects of the local culture. Decidedly unique, each panel has an account of the works that inspired it, in addition to the description.
Guided tours of the textiles and the research facility are offered, allowing the work to not only be seen but understood. The Threads of Time Exhibit enriches the lives of its visitor by cultivating an interest in the local industry of textiles and the history found within that industry.

The exhibit can be found in the Braintree Museum on Manor Street, Braintree, Essex CM7 3HW.
The Museum is open Tuesday to Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm.
