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.

The quilts were well displayed, evoking the feel of the time most would have been made. The standard was fantastic, very inspiring. I went as part of a group of 7 quilters, and we all thoroughly enjoyed the visit. The two ladies who were running...More

This is a must place to visit for anyone interested in beautiful old Welsh Quilts. Jen Jones has a fantastic eye for detail and presentation for these old Quilts. Also interesting data of old diaries and photographs and newspaper cuttings displayed.
