The sound of dust settling

It’s been a while since the last post – not that nothing’s been happening – it’s just that  we’ve been busy taking down our summer exhibition and making plans for next year. We had over 2000 visitors to the Minerva Arts Centre over the last few weeks and their comments in our Visitors’ Book show how much they’ve enjoyed their trip to Llanidloes. Our Cash4Quilts have sold out!! This means we have extra funds to spend on more beautiful antique quilts to add to our collection.

We’re currently very busy firming up our programme for next year and have already put four workshops into the calendar.  As you know from my last post we are looking forward to our Spring exhibition DIS/rupt from the Textile Study Group and we can now proudly announce that three of the Group’s members, Sarah Burgess, Bobby Britnell and Ruth Issett will be running a day or half-day workshop alongside the exhibition.  details of all three are on the website now.

We’re also delighted to say that, in September, Bethan Ash will be tutoring a workshop for us.  More information about that on the website very soon.

Watch this space – we’ve lots more plans in the pipeline!!
