Our exhibition Unforgettable opens on the 5th of March and will run until the 5th of November. Historic Welsh Quilts and Costume from the collections of Ron Simpson, Jen Jones, and the Ceredigion Museum will take centre stage in the dramatic Courtroom Gallery. As always the exhibition will be designed by Gwenllian Ashley. Featured are the strikingly bold 19th century Welsh Flannel Patchwork Quilts and the quintessential Welsh Hat.
The highly anticipated raffle will be drawn on Friday 30th October, the prize being the chance to win an antique Welsh Quilt circa 1920s from The Jen Jones Collection. The proceeds from the raffle are used in the conservation of Welsh Quilts as it is an extremely costly process restoring these Welsh textiles...
