Antique & Vintage Quilt Heritage Day


A day for lovers of old quilts with displays of antique and vintage quilts, vintage quilts for sale, the chance to chat to experts, and ideas and inspiration for creating a future heirloom quilt, including:

  • an exhibition of quilts from the antique and vintage quilt collections of Barbara Chainey and Jane Cobbett
  • Barbara and Jane will be here all day and to look at any vintage or family heirloom quilts and try to date and appraise them, as well as advise on their care
  • vintage quilts for sale from Barbara’s own collection
  • a display of antique and vintage sewing and needlework tools
  • Barbara will demonstrate traditional hand quilting techniques and give tips for success
  • a small exhibition from the Traditional Quilt Group of the Quilters’ Guild of the British Isles
  • our own special Bramble Patch raffle quilt will be available for visitors to add stitches; the quilt will be raffled later in the year for Macmillan
  • as always, coffee, tea and cake in the tea room in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support
