Friday, 12 April 2013 Wales!

As soon as one exhibition closes our minds turn to the next.  The Minerva Arts Centre is the venue for the final outing of Orientation hosted by The Quilt Association. We're so pleased to be able to show our work in this lovely spacious gallery. Not only will the current work be on display, but to fill all that extra room we'll be making new things too.

We hope that you'll join us for a special Meet The Artists afternoon:

Meet the Artists
Sunday 21st July 2013, 1pm-3pm
Minerva Arts Centre
High Street
SY18 6BY

Normal admission charges will apply. For more details please visit The Quilt Association website.

If you're not familiar with The Quilt Association and all of the work they do both in the documentation and collection of antique quilts, but also the exhibition of new work then do take a look at their website. I hadn't visited the site for a while and it's all been revamped. There is lots of information about the quilt collection including lovely images. I particularly liked this quilt which I'm sure I've seen on display there at a previous summer show. Along with the images is all the information that they've documented. This quilt is thought to date from around 1880.

If you can't come to the Meet the Artists day then don't worry, the exhibition runs from 8th July - 7th September so there's lots of time to visit. Also on display will be a collection of Canadian Red Cross quilts. Hope to see you there.

The Grand Total

Hi everyone,

Just heard from Anne at The Bramble Patch. She wrote to thank us all for exhibiting there and to let us know that the exhibition raised £1500 for Macmillan cancer care. Isn't that great news!

A big thank you to everyone who visited and helped to contribute to this excellent result.

Now, on to thinking about the next outing for Orientation at Minerva....


just made it!

Edwina and I have been on the road a lot this past week but one thing on the list was to get to the Bramble Patch and have a look at the Orientation exhibition. We made it! and just hours before it was due to come down, whew. I know we've posted some images already but the exhibition looked so lovely I can't resist showing a few more.
Thanks so much to Anne and the gang at the Bramble Patch for all their hospitality!

Still time for an outing

There's still time to catch Orientation at The Bramble Patch. On until Saturday, the exhibition includes work from all members of the group. Here are a few photos of how it's looking...
