The Welsh & New Zealand Exchange

Lynda Somerville, from Quilters & Patchworkers of Otago Inc, organised an exchange along with her friend, Brenda Howell from the South Wales Ceredigion Quilters Guild, to showcase the international relationship and beauty of the craft.  Lynda sent over 23 quilts from the Dunedin area groups, all with a New Zealand theme, in exchange for Welsh ones.

Ours arrived last year and were on display at Tremain, Cardigan and will be on display again, as part of their annual exhibition, at Cardigan Castle for the month of April. The New Zealand themed quilts have also been shown at various quilting groups abroad.  The Welsh quilts will be taken by Lynda to show at as many Quilting groups as possible, before being distributed to those who partook in this exchange.
