Textile Crafts by local women

There was a great turn out for the Opening of ‘Connecting Threads: Textile Crafts’, the current exhibition at Strule Arts Centre Omagh. The twenty seven members of Omagh Quilters Guild brought along family and friends to enjoy a cuppa while catching up with each other and to revel in awe at the stunning work on display. Quilts of all sizes and designs, wet felted pictures, felted bags and bowls, Christmas table runners, place mats – there is no end to the talents in this group!

Vice Chair Anne Marie Donnelly opened the exhibition, paying tribute to the work of the group in keeping these heritage traditions alive to pass on to future generations.

Omagh Quilters Guild Chair, Ann Taggart also thanked everyone involved who had helped to make this exhibition happen.
