Queens County Heritage

June 18 - 8PM

Queens County Heritage, Gagetown, New Brunswick requests the pleasure of your company for the official opening celebration of the historic Loomcrofters Studio, Saturday, 18 June 2016, 2pm at 69 Front Street, Gagetown.

The oldest building still standing in New Brunswick, the c.1761 studio was originally built as a British military trading post.  Over the years it served as a farm shed until 1945 when it became the home of the world renowned Loomcrofters Hand Weaving Studio under the direction of Patricia Jenkins.

The business became famous for its design and production of tartans including the Royal Canadian Air Force Tartan, the New Brunswick Tartan, the City of Fredericton Tartan, Town of Oromocto, Lions Club, Kinsmen and more.

When the business closed in 2013, the weaving studio, tools and equipment, remaining products and business archive were donated to Queens County Heritage.  In December 2014 the building was moved to the grounds of the Tilley House and underwent restoration in 2015.  Now completed and interpreted as a museum, we are ready to celebrate!

Get your tartan on and join us for an afternoon of food, music and fun!
