World Wide Whispers

Saturday, 31 August 2019 to Sunday, 27 October 2019

Farfield Mill, Garsdale Road, Sedbergh LA10 5LW

‘World Wide Whispers’ was started following a conversation between Ann Hill and four other international quilters – Paula Rafferty from Ireland, Jeltje van Essen from The Netherlands, Debbi Cagney from USA and Kim Caskey from Canada when they met in Edinburgh.

They each chose 12 quilters, one for each month of the year, and asked them to make a quilt from a photograph of a quilt that they would receive from the quilter who made the quilt the month before them. This resulted in 12 quilts from 5 countries totaling 60 quilts in all.

The exhibition runs from 31 August – 27 October from 10.30 am to 5.00 pm each day at Farfield Mill, Garsdale Road, Sedbergh, LA10 5LW.  

Standard admission £4.05 (£4.50 gift admission with 10% donation)
Free for children and students.
FREE entry for LA10 residents on Sundays.
There is no charge to visit the retail gallery, shop or The Tea Room.
