Just a quick update on the Connecting Threads installation at Charnwood Museum, Loughborough! We had a good day on Monday – the scaffold tower arrived early as well as the man with the van so we were able to get started as soon as the staff let us through the doors. The photographs are up, the televisions fixed in place, the maquettes are in the display cases and the cables were fixed! Today was electrics day – and yes you’ve guessed – even though we tested the cables before installing them (and they all worked) when we hung them up two of them didn’t work! Having learnt our lessons from previous times we had only loosely fixed them up but it was still a nuisance. Much huffing, puffing and sighing later they now work!
Tomorrow will be wool winding and hanging bobbins day – and this is when you can actually start to get an idea of the finished work!
All being well we should be done and all ready to open on Saturday – will keep you posted!
