Ray Stitch Presents An Evening with London Cloth Company - We have carefully curated an event programme packed full with talks from inspiring designers, innovators and creators.


Join us for an evening of stories and discussion with the founder of London Cloth Company, Daniel.


The London Cloth Company was established in October 2011 and is the first micro-mill to open in London. Housed in a studio in Clapton is an ever-expanding range of carefully restored shuttle looms dating from the 1870s. The London Cloth Company first came into being when Daniel rescued a rusting loom from an old barn in rural Wales, naively thinking all else he’d need would be a small hand bobbin winder.


With absolutely no training or prior knowledge of weaving, Daniel learnt as he went along. Fully dismantling and reassembling machines that hadn’t been touched for 30 years, he quickly taught himself all the intricacies of the different parts.


This two hour event begins with a 30 minute reception with free drinks and snacks followed by an hour’s talk and then a 30 minute Q and A at the end.
