Propagansey, Cromer Museum 2pm Sat May 18th
Contributed by Deb Gillanders
Cromer Museum have kindly invited me to come & do my Propagansey talk & display this Saturday afternoon. I'm bringing a selection of (mainly) old Ganseys & photos & will witter on with enthusiasm for an hour or two - very happy to meet other Ganseys, of course, as well as reacquaint myself with this museum's collection. I should add I have a pattern notated about 30 years ago from a 1917 photograph of the lifeboat crew at Wells next the Sea - it looks Scottish to me which only goes to show how fluidly they shifted around. I also have to say it was given to me in New Zealand, along with its part-knitted Gansey .. come & see!
