On display is 'Home in the Woods' (2019) by Margaret Woodside

Larne Museum is pleased to welcome a new temporary exhibition by Loose Thread Quilters this October.

Formed in 1996, Loose Thread Quilters is a small group of quilt makers drawn from across Northern Ireland. The group promotes the art of patchwork, appliqué and quilt making for both traditional quilters and contemporary fabric artists. Its membership covers a wide range of abilities, united in a common love of fabric colour and texture. As a working group, exhibitions are an important feature of its annual programme.

Mayor Cllr, William McCaughey said: “This current exhibition entitled “There’s No Place Like Home” should really have been on show before now, but like so many things it has been held back because of the pandemic. Since we have all been confined to our homes for so long, it seems fitting that this particular exhibition should mark a return for Loose Thread Quilters to doing what they love to do best!”

The exhibition will be on display in Larne Museum & Arts Centre from Friday 1 until Monday 25 October 2021 from 10.00am – 3.00pm Monday-Friday (lunchtime closing 12.15pm – 12.45pm).
