Terrance Gilbert, a very experienced quilter from Kent, will be coming to Ceredigion to talk about his own work and the workshops he has organised over the past 20+ years, where teams of quilters work together to create quilts for babies in prison, the Linus project, refugee children, fostered children and many more. In 2015 he received an award from the Duchess of Cambridge in recognition of his years of supporting children in foster care. His group, Helping Hands, also made quilts for George and Charlotte which were presented to the Duchess.
On the 22nd, Terrance will be giving a workshop for us where we will work in teams to create a number of quilts for his chosen charity. We hope a huge number will turn up from all over the region to support this event.
