Don't miss this very rare opportunity to view the historic Marianne Gibson quilt created in 1864. The 'crazy patchwork' quilt is a recognised National treasure and a superb example of the technique.
A couple of workshops will not run unless we get one or two more participants. So hurry to book one, or more, of our workshops from August 8 to 16. Bookings will close shortly. The workshops will be held in the Guild rooms, behind St Paul's church.
