Quilters’ hard work goes on display at Ryedale Folk Museum
7:20am Thursday 15th August 2013 in News
TWO years of intricate work creating a community quilt has ended with it being given pride of place at the Ryedale Folk Museum in Hutton-le-Hole.
Made by the Heather Quilters, a group of enthusiasts based in the moorland village of Glaisdale, it has gone on display at the museum’s Victorian White Cottage, said museum trustee David Island.
“We are delighted to have received such a wonderful piece of work, showcasing what communities working together, can achieve,” he said.
The Heather Quilters was founded 15 years ago to produce quilts and family heirlooms.
Its 35 members meet fortnightly at the Robinson Institute in Glaisdale, and over the years have raised money for local charities by donating quilts, among them the Linus Project which saw quilts made for children in hospital.
