In 2014, Coats donated it's archive to the Guild. There is very little accompanying documentation, but there are lots of wonderful items waiting to be researched. Many of the items were collected by or designed by James Norbury, Chief Designer for Patons and Baldwins 1946 to 1969. The tams from Shetland inspired pattern leaflets in the 1950s and 1960s.
Members can download these patterns in Patons Fiona from our Collection.
