Quilt Exhibition in Preston

There’s a new exhibition at the Harris Museum in Preston of patchwork quilts.

The exhibition is called “Stitches in Time: The History of Preston’s Women” and features quilted banners made by local women from the Well Women’s Centre in 1992 for the Pieces of History project. The project raised awareness of the influential part women played in the history of Preston and promoted the needlework skills and textiles on which Preston’s prosperity was founded.

The exhibition runs until 28th September 2013.
