The Quilt Centre is easy to find, has a quilt shop nearby and a wonderful cafe next door (run by Jen's daughter and partner) - what could be better?
Jen kindly allowed me to take photos to share with you in this blog. Details of the exhibition and Jen's website at the bottom of this post. In addition to Jen's own collection, quilts were loaned by the American Museum at Bath, Ceridigion Museum and the National Museum for the Wool Industry.
