About
After a year off The Welsh Quilt Centre's gallery will be re-opening for a brand new quilt exhibition in May 2020! The new exhibition will run until December 24th 2020. The Welsh Quilt Centre's shop is currently open. Please see our website for further details. The Welsh Quilt Centre opened in Lampeter Town Hall in 2009 to celebrate the Welsh Quilt and to promote a wider understanding of the importance of this regional art form. Here you can enjoy stunning exhibitions of Welsh Quilts in the gallery, attend quilt-related courses or just browse the intriguing Welsh Quilt Centre Gallery Shop. The original cottage shop in Llanybydder also remains open.

Reviews say it is closed but it was open!
Jul. 2019 • Couples
Slightly confused as reviews say this is closed so we were surprised when having a coffee in the cafe next door to see The Welsh Quilt Centre open! Shop at the front and a wonderful display of historic quilts and blankets with a little about their history at the back. We bought a sample pack of blanket pieces that we will use in our creative work.

My second visit here and it is just as wonderful, with amazing examples of quilts from different eras. It is closing soon so I am glad I was able to get one last visit in.

Spectacular

Please go before it closes, it was just awesome, and support any project to have the quilts tour the country. If Jen Jones writes a book on the Centre and the quilts, buy in multiple numbers and give it to friends. Really not to be missed if possible.

A showcase of quilts

Fantastic showcase of past exhibitions. This is sadly the last exhibition so was pleased to be able to get to see it before it closes for good at the end of the year.

Quilts galore!
Sep. 2018 • Solo
I spent a few hours here and found the exhibition really interesting, with lots of information cards explaining where the quilts came from and the techniques used. There was also a Welsh sampler exhibition which was equally as good. The staff were friendly and helpful and the shop was well stocked with ‘goodies’ made locally.

Beautiful Historical Quilts

The proprietor, Jen Jones, is a wealth of information. She has an extensive collection of Welsh quilts. The center will only be open for another year and then she is closing. Get there while you can.

Stupendous selection of Welsh Quilts
Aug. 2018
Catch this exhibition while you can - the museum closes permanently mid-November. Even non-Quilters will be blown away by the colours and patterns. The curation and the actual display of the individual items is superb.

Visit before it closes this year!
Aug. 2018 • Couples
Loved this place so much when I visited in 2013, 2017 I just had to visit this year - and before it closes later on this year. There is currently a fabulous display of traditional Welsh quilts and patchwork - a real celebration of textiles and gorgeousness. Staff really friendly and helpful - and the cool jazz that's being played in the exhibition is a perfect touch too! Go see and catch it for yourself!
