The Thornbury Quilt

Talk: Wed 09 Dec 2015 7:30pm
Venue: United Reformed Church Admission: £5

A rare chance to see and hear about a real Sleeping Beauty – the Thornbury Quilt!

Discover how the Quilt emerged after lying unknown for over a hundred years.  You can find out who created it.

Most exciting of all, learn about the Thornbury of the year 1900, through this unique textile snapshot of the turn of the last century.

Jane Marks and Pauline Montgomery will take you back in time and share with you their researches into the people, places and local businesses represented on the Quilt.

You will have a chance to examine the Quilt – and even sponsor a square!  The museum’s fundraising campaign is already well on the way to meeting the cost of purchasing the Quilt.  It’s a fun way to support your local volunteer-run museum!

The ticket price includes refreshments.


Tickets should be booked in advance by visiting, phoning or emailing the museum.
