Everingham & Watson are delightful to be involved with the QAG/ GOMA Winter Markets.
Liz worked there for many years, so its always lovely seeing old faces and meeting lots of new ones. While its a winter market, expect lots of colour from E&W + some new and exciting pieces.
The market cooicides with a new exhibition Quilts 1700 – 1945
Explore over 200 years of British quiltmaking. Every stitch tells a story.
Quilts stimulate memories of warmth, comfort and security. They are familiar objects, yet carry a range of hidden histories and untold stories about textiles, women’s creativity and the lives of individuals and families. British quilts were often made for display as much as for use in the bedroom. Whether exchanged as commodities, made in professional workshops or created in the home, they became objects of immense family value, handed down through the generations.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
