Brand New Exhibition

The Welsh Quilt Centre is excited to announce that it will be re-opening in 2020 for a brand new exhibition! The Magical Quilts of Wales will be a dazzling display of Welsh patchwork, wholecloth and appliqué quilts, dating from 1800-1945, from Jen Jones’s private collection. The Exhibition will run from May 1st to December 24th 2020. A number of the quilts selected for display have never been exhibited before.

Groups of over five people wanting to see the 2020 exhibition are encouraged to book a visit as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. For group visits it is also possible to book a guided tour by Jen Jones, who is the world expert on Welsh quilts. By request a Welsh speaking guide can be provided.
