The Welsh Quilt Centre

Housed in the Old Town Hall in Lampeter is the Welsh Quilt Centre.

This lovely building is a wonderful setting for a display of quilts. The Centre currently has an exhibition showcasing the connections between Welsh and Amish quilts.

As well as seeing many wonderful and inspiring quilts, you also get to explore the historical connection between the Welsh and Amish communities in America and, as with most exhibitions of old quilts, there are fascinating stories of social history and individual lives behind each quilt.
