At the beginning of the Easter break I promised myself that I would get to Warwick to check out the exhibition at the museum and to visit The Quilter's Den, a new quilting shop that opened last month. Finally today, the last day of the Easter break, I got down there to visit.
As it happened, I parked fairly close to the Warwickshire Museum to see the exhibition by Leamside Textiles. This particular exhibition will be running until April 21st so there is a few days left if you are interested in going. It is a fairly small collection of work, but very well worth a visit if you are into the style of art quilts. The quilts on display are of a very high standard and although I'm not a huge fan of art quilts I could really appreciate the work and the stitching in those on display at the museum.
After a spot of lunch I went down to visit The Quilter's Den and after a lovely chat with the owner Anita I made some purchases...oh it was really hard to only buy a few things..she had so many lovely things. Anita explained that The Quilter's Den will be starting workshops (as of tomorrow) so if you are interested, give her a ring. All in all it was a fabulous day out...and a great way to end the week and the holidays.
