“Textiles- Not as we Know it”

The Biannual Conference of the Weaving Group
4th October 2018
Cedar Court Hotel, Huddersfield

The biennial conference attracted over 200 delegates and speakers and we were delighted to be approached to weave the banners to promote the event.

The conference is an opportunity to meet up with the industry professionals for varied presentations from the machinery makers and key topical speakers.

From woolens to airbags, linen to carbon fibre, industrial fabrics to apparel and from the four corners of the UK; this is the one conference and dinner where the various weaving sectors come together to talk about common issues; including Brexit this year!

The layout of the banner was created by Ben Brown of Alfred Brown Ltd. The yarn was supplied by Burberry, and then Joanna Brockbank our designer at S Dawes Weaving translated the design into weave, it was then woven at Greenhill Mill in Colne.

This was quite a challenge for our designer as there were only around 10 working days to turn this project into the finished product.  We worked on the design, added our logo and decided on a construction based on the yarn counts supplied in by Burberry. The banners were then cut and sewn by Herbert Parkinson; it was a joint effort of four companies.
