Paisley Thread Mill Museum was founded in 2003 to tell the story of the Clarks and Coats Thread Mills of Paisley, Today we tell the story of Thread Making in Paisley from it's origin in 1722 to the close of the last mill in 1993... Paisley Thread Mill Museum aims to preserve the social and industrial heritage of the Paisley & Renfrewshire Thread Mills for the education and enjoyment of all by collecting and displaying material relating to the the thread industry. Many of the items of display have been donated by people who were connected with the local thread mills and include photographs, mill machinery, samples of products made there and sewing artefacts. A large collection has been donated to the museum by Coats Plc. The Coats collection includes Silverware, Trade Medals, Patent records, & Trade Mark dispute records. A more recent donation from Coats Crafts contained 2 pallet loads of material from Patterns to Film Reels and VHS Videos. We are still sorting through the Coats Craft..
