The Magna Carta Quilts - on Display 11th - 15th March

Members of the public are welcome to come and view one of our latest acquisitions - The Magna Carta Quilts. Created to celebrate the 800th anniversary of the signing of the Magna Carta, Four quilts tell the story of the Magna Carta in a graphic novel style based on 13th century illuminated manuscripts, and four quilts explore the legacy of this famous historical event.

These beautiful quilts are expertly designed and intricately stitched, and well worth a visit from both textile enthusiasts and history lovers. The quilts were kindly donated to The Quilters' Guild last year by the Magna Carta Quilt Association, an unincorporated and not for profit association consisting of a small group of quilters and textile artists who have connections with Runnymede

Entrance is FREE to everyone. Open from 10 - 4. Volunteers will be on hand to answer any questions.
