Lyn Dennis's talk to the QSG of NSW on 9th March 2013




Lyn Dennis will give a talk for the Quilt Study Group of NSW about her quilt study trip in May 2012 to the United Kingdom. While in England, Lyn was able to study some of the quilts in the collections at Norwich Guild Hall, Norwich and Gawthorpe Hall, Lancashire. There will be approximately 10-12 quilts which she has detailed with photographs, description and measurements.



I had previously arranged the visits with the two curators, corresponding by email, to meet them on a mutually suitable day to view and photograph some of the quilts in their collections.  I will briefly describe one of the quilts in the Norwich Guild Hall collection that brought tears to my eyes and then, show photographs of, and provide information about, the quilts in the Rachel-Kay-Shuttleworth collection in Gawthorpe Hall and describe why the visit to Gawthorpe Hall was so memorable on several accounts’.

Come along to the Charles Kerry Room on the 5th floor of the Powerhouse Museum at 2pm on the 9th March 2013 to hear Lyn speak. There is no entry fee to the PHM charged for those coming to the talks, but we do charge $5 for Quilters' Guild of NSW members and $10 for non-Guild members to attend. Afternoon tea is provided free.
