Comforts for the Troops

This event has finished. 30 May–1 June 2014, 12pm - 3pm

Throughout the Great War, women were encouraged to knit and sew items to send in comfort parcels to the troops abroad.

Find out what went into these parcels, try on some replica items and have a go at working an antique sock knitting machine and sewing machine.
