We were absolutely delighted to be invited to exhibit our wonderful Welsh Quilts at this celebrated international textile event. Verona Tessile is spread over five days (19th-24th May 2015) and is a festival of Textile Art.
The museums, churches, and the many picturesque locations of this enchanting city play host to exhibitions, studios, tours, talks and anything else associated in the world of textile art. As an expert in the cultural heritage of Welsh textile art, Jen Jones was invited to showcase Antique Welsh Quilts – ‘Quilts from the Heartlands of Wales’. This exhibition from The Jen Jones Collection is a stunning collection of Welsh Quilts from 1840-1930.
Also as an expert on Welsh textile art, Jen was invited to speak on the subject of ‘The Art of Welsh Quilt’ which was a much anticipated event.
This further illustrates how the ancient art of Welsh Quilting ranks highly in the International World of Textiles.
