The Quilt Museum and Gallery

The Quilt Museum and Gallery was operated by The Quilters' Guild from June 2008 to October 2015.  Over seven and a half years the Quilt Museum and Gallery showed over 60 exhibitions, welcomed over 97,000 visitors and worked with over 8,500 children and adults in sewing workshops which were supported between 2009 - 2011 by a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

The Guild will continue to find ways of showing the Collection, for more information see The Quilters' Guild Collection.

You can still see over 600 items from the Collection on the Quilt Museum and Gallery web site.

Our on-line shop remains open.  Please visit to see our range of books, fabrics, kits and items featuring quilts from the collection.
