Explore a range of themed quilts by the Loose Thread Quilters.

Formed in 1996, Loose Thread Quilters is a small group of quilt makers from across Northern Ireland. The group promotes the art of patchwork, appliqué and quilt making for both traditional quilters and contemporary fabric artists. Its membership covers a wide range of abilities, united in a common love of fabric, colour and texture.

This exhibition should have opened before now, but like so many things it was held back by the pandemic. Since we have all been confined to our homes for so long, it seems fitting that this particular exhibition should mark a return for the Loose Thread Quilters to doing what they love to do best.
