My second visit here and it is just as wonderful, with amazing examples of quilts from different eras. It is closing soon so I am glad I was able to get one last visit in.

Please go before it closes, it was just awesome, and support any project to have the quilts tour the country. If Jen Jones writes a book on the Centre and the quilts, buy in multiple numbers and give it to friends. Really not to be...More

Fantastic showcase of past exhibitions. This is sadly the last exhibition so was pleased to be able to get to see it before it closes for good at the end of the year.

The proprietor, Jen Jones, is a wealth of information. She has an extensive collection of Welsh quilts. The center will only be open for another year and then she is closing. Get there while you can.

Catch this exhibition while you can - the museum closes permanently mid-November. Even non-Quilters will be blown away by the colours and patterns. The curation and the actual display of the individual items is superb.

Loved this place so much when I visited in 2013, 2017 I just had to visit this year - and before it closes later on this year. There is currently a fabulous display of traditional Welsh quilts and patchwork - a real celebration of textiles...More

An unassuming storefront from the street but quite the gallery once inside. The "quilt centre" is actually a museum with lots of amazing hand-made quilts on display. The ladies who run the museum are knowledgeable and more than willing to talk about the histories of...More
