A celebration of all things quilting and stitching at a packed weekend of activity to complement the special exhibition Treasured Threads: Unpicking Gunnersbury’s Quilts.  Pop-up displays include Canadian Red Cross quilts, a selection of quilts by renowned contemporary quilter Janet Clare, and an exhibition of Criminal Quilts, an art and heritage project by Ruth Singer.  Visitors can get involved too by supporting Gunnersbury’s charity crafting activities – why not hand stitch a patchwork block with Project Linus and knit a blanket square for Cats Protection?

For those wanting to delve deeper into the quilting world, a series of special workshops and talks is on offer (charges apply).  Speakers include textile artist Ruth Singer, historic quilt expert Bridget Long and Curator of the Quilters’ Guild Collection, Heather Audin.  Workshop themes include making a mug mat at Sunday’s quilt-as-you-go workshop and new ideas for embellishing and upcycling your favourite old clothes.  For the full programme and to book tickets for talks and workshops please see http://www.visitgunnersbury.org/the-great-gunnersbury-quilting-bee/

Admission free (charges apply for workshops and talks)
