Hall hosting artistic quilts

SOME historic handicrafts will be on display at Belsay Hall in the coming week.

The venue will showcase the textile art of quilting by running an exhibition of individual quilts by local craftspeople from the North East.

In recent years, galleries across the UK have been asking those who use a needle and thread to join layers of material together to make items for artistic purposes.

The display will be held between Saturday and Sunday, May 12, from 10am to 6pm each day. For more information, telephone 01661 881636.
