Blue Blanket Replica

As the original Blue Blanket was extremely fragile and unable to be displayed, it was agreed that a replica be commissioned following discussions with the Embroiders Guild.

At the end of July 2016, Provost Mike Robbins attended a special event held in the Smith Museum where the new replica Blue Blanket was presented to the Hammermen by the Embroiderers Guild. It is an impressive piece of work that had painstakingly been copied from the 500 year old original held in the Smith. Deacon Convener of the Seven Incorporated Trades Stuart Campbell thanked Jane Currie and all the members of the Guild for their hard work.

The Blue Blanket replica was then displayed at the Walking of the Marches in 2017 and onwards.
