St Clair Villa – Goulburn

Goulburn, New South Wales

#StClairVilla #Goulburn. From Needle & Thread to Machine: A Revolution in Domestic Clothing Manufacture. A really interesting exhibition of early Australian clothing, stitching, lace and sewing machines. Was shown through by a lovely gentleman who was able to teach me so much of the local history along with lots of really interesting information on the growth of the textile industry and the changes that purchasing sewing machines made to life in Australian homes. #sewing #sewinghistory #lace #applique #smoking #historicalclothing #sewingmachine #history #clothing
