I was hoping to see the obnoxious woman but no sign. But then I didn't try to touch the quilts. But it would have been nice to have been given gloves as any sewer wants to look at the back of things. The exhibition was wonderful and we were lucky to catch it as they were planning to dismantle it... More

Wonderful collection of historic quilts. The lady who introduced the collection to us was knowledgeable and very warm. The display is clear and comprehensive. Even if you are not that interested in quilt, go and have a look at these works of art.

We were warmly welcomed in their well-stocked Gallery Shop where we browsed through their impressive range of books, jewellery and greeting cards as well as marvelling at their... More

I am so pleased that I made the long journey to visit the quilt museum, it was definitely worth the visit. They have an excellent collection of quilts and there is plenty of space to view them and very nicely set out. They have some wonderful things to buy in the shop.

Small museum housed in Lampeter’s former Town Hall. An excellent collection of antique Welsh quilts changes several times a year so there is always something new. A display of very high quality modern quilting by a Bristol-based craftswomen is currently also on display. For anyone with an even passing interest in textiles this museum is a ‘must’. The collection has... More
