Find out about quilting and the Underground Railroad!  Patches are a quilting group who meet regularly in Cullercoats, and on Saturday 16 November they will be at the Old Low Light.

There will be a selection of recent work to look at, informal demonstrations of the techniques they use, and the opportunity to chat to them about their creations.  Quilts on display will include a number based on the ‘Underground Railroad’ design, a pattern which honours the networks used by American slaves escaping captivity in the 19

thcentury.
