Thank you for wanting to share your story with us. Please send your stories to lesley@storiesofcloth.com, and attach any images you would like to include. If you would like to make contact with Lesley first, then please email her with your questions, and she will get back to you.

Please note that by sending an email to us with your story, you are giving us permission to include your story on this website.

Here are some questions you might like to consider before telling us your story: What memory does cloth hold for you? What did it look like, what was its function? What did it smell like? What emotion is attached to it? How are fabrics used? Who made them and what techniques were used in the process? Do you have any family heirlooms? If so whose were they originally and who made them? How does the item make you feel when you view or hold it? If you bought the item who was with you and where did you buy it from? How was the item used or worn? What happened to it after the event? Are there any special rituals/traditions involved in this occasion? Can you describe your memories of the occasion? What did your parents and grandparents do? Was it different from today? Do you have any family photos or artefacts? What type of textiles of ritual importance are made or used for a birth or naming ceremony, in preparation for a marriage ie a dowry, or in preparation for death or in the preparation of the body for burial or cremation? What would other family members wear on these occasions and how would the home, church or temple be decorated?
