The Quilt Museum and Gallery is Britain's first museum dedicated to quiltmaking and textile arts.
The Museum is managed by The Quilters' Guild of the British Isles, an educational charity founded in 1979. Our aim is to promote the crafts of patchwork, appliqué and quilting through changing exhibitions of historic and contemporary textiles. The Quilt Museum and Gallery is independently funded through admissions, grants and donations.
Sadly, the Quilt Museum and Gallery will be closing on 31st October as it is not financially viable for us to remain open. You can read more about that decision here.
Over the past 7 years the Museum has welcomed over 80,000 visitors through its doors, sharing our passion for quilting and textile art with a broad audience. Our last exhibitions are a fitting note to go out on – Back in Time, an exhibition of our most recent acquisitions which span the last three centuries, and Quilt Art’s Dialogues, a celebration of that group’s 30 year anniversary. We hope you will join us for these final exhibitions.
