10:00 am - 11:30 am



Liz Trenow’s family have been silk weavers for more than 300 years and are one of only two major companies continuing to weave today in the UK, supplying top end suppliers all over the world. They have woven royal silks for major occasions such as Queen Elizabeth’s coronation gown and wedding dresses for Princess Diana and Princess Anne.

This remarkable history has inspired several of Liz’s best-selling novels, and her history of the family company has recently been published. This presentation will follow the family’s silk weaving fortunes from their origins as apprentice weavers in Spitalfields, London right up to the present day in a rural market town in Sudbury, Suffolk, as well as how this silk heritage has inspired her novels.

Liz Trenow is the author of eight best-selling novels, several of which have been inspired by her silk heritage, including The Forgotten Seamstress a NY Times and USA Today best seller, The Hidden Thread and The Last Telegram. Her work has been translated into many languages. She lives in Essex, England, with her artist husband, and has two daughters and three grandchildren.
