The Quilters' Guild Collection

The Quilters’ Guild Collection is held byThe Quilters' Guild of the British Isles, an educational charity founded in 1979. Our aim is to promote the crafts of patchwork, applique and quilting.

The Quilt Museum and Gallery closed in 2015, but access to our collections is still possible through loans to other exhibitions of historic and contemporary textiles, our own touring exhibitions which feature at The Festival of Quilts and Knitting and Stitching shows, and by booked appointments with the Guild Collection Curator.

**New for 2017** You can now become a Friend of the Collection, and visit mini-exhibitions at St. Anthony's Hall during the specific opening times four times a year. To find out more information please click here.

To see what exhibitions we have planned across the country featuring items from our Collection, please visit our Exhibition pages. You can also keep up to date with any Collection news on our Facebook page.
