Spinning demonstration on Sma Shot Day in the Thread Mill Museum in Paisley

Come along to the spinning demonstration on Sma Shot Day in Paisley’s Thread Mill Museum on Saturday, 7. July 12.30- 15.30

Have you ever heard of Sma Shot Day? No? Me neither. So here we go! I discovered that Sma Shot Day is related to the weaving industry, which made Paisley one of the major textile producing areas in the British Empire. That was in the 19th century. The sma shot was the binding thread between the patterned scarves which Paisley is famous for. The sma shot was never seen in the finished scarves and the manufacturers refused to pay the weavers for the yarn. Eventually after years of dispute the weavers won their cause.  Even today this victory is still celebrated! The traditional July holiday was renamed as Sma Shot Day and is celebrated on the first Saturday of that month, which is this coming Saturday, 7. July .
