Welsh Quilt Centre

The idea to open a Centre to celebrate and promote a wider understanding of the Welsh Quilt, came from Jen Jones, whose obsession with collecting Welsh Quilts, Blankets and textiles has spanned over forty years. Jen’s perseverance has led to the saving and preservation of this vital part of Welsh heritage.

This has been appreciated by the Cambrian Mountains Initiative, leading to Jen Jones being appointed as Tourism Ambassador. The Cambrian Mountains Initiative was inspired by His Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales to ‘sustain traditional Welsh upland farms and rural communities’.
