THE QUILT MUSEUM CELEBRATES THREE CENTURIES OF BRITISH PATCHWORK AND QUILTING
Back in Time: British Patchwork and Quilting Exhibition
11 September – 31 October, 2015
Back in Time: British Patchwork and Quilting will explore the changes in development and approach to patchwork and quilting in Britain over the last three centuries and will include works from The Quilters’ Guild Collection not previously exhibited, as well as new acquisitions.
Back in Time: British Patchwork and Quilting will run concurrently with the Quilt Art Dialogues exhibition. “It’s a rare and exciting opportunity for visitors to see such excellent examples of traditional and contemporary quilts sharing the same space. Visitors will be able to see and appreciate how function, design, materials and techniques have evolved over the last few centuries”, said Museum Manager, Shirley Collier.
Quilt Museum and Gallery – St Anthony’s Hall, York
The Quilt Museum and Gallery is the national headquarters of The Quilters’ Guild of the British Isles and its extensive collection of quilts and quilt related artefacts.
The Quilt Museum and Gallery is the UK’s only museum dedicated exclusively to quilting and textile arts based in historic St Anthony’s Hall, York. The hall was originally built as the headquarters of a religious guild in the 15th century, and has had a colourful past – as a workhouse for the poor, a magazine store during the reign of Charles I, a military hospital, a prison, and a school. The beautiful medieval spaces have been restored and adapted to accommodate the Museum and its wide range of displays and activities.
