A group of Committee members met on Monday to visit the SAQA exhibition of quilts currently on display in the Steam Museum in Swindon.
I was interested to see how the members of this group came from such a variety of countries and the only name I recognised was Maggie Harris who used to be a member of our group.
Below you can read about SAQA and the theme for this exhibition which was started during lockdown.
For those of you who have not visited the Steam Museum in Swindon, you have to weave your way through the various train related exhibits before and after reaching the quilt display so, needless to say, we all had a bit of fun playing at being train drivers! The museum is a great day out for all ages with lots of interactive exhibits for everyone.
We all enjoyed looking at the quilts on display, discussing the techniques used and the choice of design.
The exhibition is on display until 5 November 2023
