|About||Shetland's dedicated textiles museum at the Böd of Gremista.|
NOW CLOSED FOR THE WINTER. OPENING AGAIN LAST WEEK IN APRIL 2018.
Shetland Textile Museum is a community museum dedicated to Shetland textiles. Housed in the Böd of Gremista on Lerwick's waterfront, the STM boasts a world renowned collection of historical knitted and woven textiles dating from the 19th century to the present day. In total there are over a thousand objects and records in the collection, five hundred of which are textile artefacts.
Regular demonstrations of spinning and knitting, and a gift shop showcasing products from designer-makers, make the STM a vibrant centre of Shetland's textile culture and heritage.
The Böd was once a fishing station house and is most famous as the birthplace of Arthur Anderson, founder of P&O Ferries - and the man who gifted Queen Victoria with stockings of Shetland Fine Lace.
