Quilt Association

The Quilt Association promotes quilting and patchwork from its base at The Minerva Arts Centre in Llanidloes, Mid Wales.

We are a registered charity, run in the main, by volunteers, and we focus on the following activities:

Caring for our collection of antique quilts, many of which are from the local area.

Holding an annual summer exhibition, featuring antique and contemporary quilts.

Providing an education programme including a Level 2 Certificate in Patchwork and Appliqué as well as a full programme of textile workshops.

The Minerva Arts Centre, with its two large galleries and accessible facilities, is used for other exhibitions, textile, crafts and arts related throughout the remainder of the year. The galleries are available for hire, and they are popular with other organisations for workshops, lectures and courses.
