As well as City&Guilds the Ashley Family Foundation grant enabled us to set up an education programme offering workshops throughout the year and covering a range of textile related subjects. Last Friday the traditional hand quilting expert, Barbara Chainey, gave us a fascinating insight into the history and technique of this form of quilting. Some of us were skeptical at the start of the day of ever achieving those beautiful small even stitches that are seen on modern quilts but by the end of the day we could all start a wholecloth. Mine is destined to become a journal quilt.
