This year, we were really happy and excited to run our exhibition at the Bressay Lighthouse again! We ran this for the first time in 2015, and decided that we would like to run it again for Shetland Wool Week 2016.
Built in 1780, this is the only böd in Shetland which has been renovated to its historical state.

The museum runs a range of events, talks, demonstrations and courses in textiles and related topics.
Our fortnightly Spinning Nights have been going down a treat, and the next one takes place this Wednesday, 20th July. Feel free to bring along your wheel or spindle, or if you prefer, your knitting. This one isn’t a workshop or class, it’s simply a chance to sit and spin or knit in company, enjoy a cup of tea and conversation, and maybe even pick up or pass on some tips.
