The Quilt Exhibition

The Abbey will form the backdrop to a magnificent collection of quilts, wall hangings and other textile articles created by members of Romsey Quilters.

There will be a category interpreting an Amy Bradley design and a display of cushions made by local children. Also on display will be two children’s quilts to be raffled in aid of the Rose Road Association for Children. (Raffle tickets will also be available at some other local events in the run-up to the exhibition. Please follow this link for more information).

As well as the wonderful displays of quilts there will be a Sales Table and demonstrations in The Abbey. Entrance to the exhibition will be free but a souvenir catalogue will be available for a suggested donation of £2.50.


There will be a ‘Pop Up’ café (run by the Daisy Cake Company) in the South Garth of the Abbey where refreshments will be served. Newspapers and some toys to entertain children will also be available.
