Well, it seems like the bank holiday weather isn’t going to be too good – at least up here in the freezing north-west!
7 May – 29 August 2011
Great Hall – Celebrations
Wedding and christening gowns are just two of the celebratory items that will be included in the Quilt Museum’s main exhibition opening on Saturday 7 May. In years past, quilts were often made to mark significant milestones in life such as birth, marriage and anniversaries. The same techniques used in these quilts, namely patchwork and quilting, were also used in costume
Bailey Gallery – Made in Yorkshire
This exhibition is the result of an invitation by the Quilt Museum to 14 textile artists working in the area including; Philippa Naylor, Serena Partridge, Gillian Travis, Fiona Wilson, Christine Shaw, Alison Bramley, Dionne Swift, Sallie Temple, Christine Heath, Fiona Wilson, Caroline Dunn, Carol Coleman, Sandra Middleton and Karen Griffiths . The work on show will demonstrate a variety of skills including weaving, embroidery and quilting ranging in form from woven scarves to applied landscapes.
