World of Glass: Quilt Creations

Colourful quilting… members of the Ruskin Quilters and Needlework Group with some of their work

25 May – 20 July 2013

Closed Sundays

Work on show has been created by the ladies of the Ruskin Quilters and Needlework Group.
Their colourful work includes wall hangings, table runners, shopping bags and handbags alongside some beautiful bed covers.
The idea for the exhibition came from Tina Peel, a former glassblower at The World of Glass, who is now the activities co-ordinator for the Pilkington Family Trusts.
A number of the quilts on display have been specially created by members for Project Linus UK.  The charity gives volunteers the opportunity to contribute to their local community by creating home-made quilts and knitted/crocheted blankets to bring security and comfort to sick and traumatised babies, children and teenagers.
