I’m delighted to announce that Shire Hall Gallery, part of Staffordshire Museums Service, are buying my whole collection of Criminal Quilts. The six textile pieces will become part of the museum service collection and will be displayed in the historic court room at Shire Hall.
As an ex-museum person, having my work preserved forever in a museum collection makes me ridiculously happy!
The pieces are on show now until 10th March and then they will re-appear sometime later in the year after being framed, in the court room.
Photographs used in the work are courtesy of Staffordshire Record Office.

Wow that is great new Ruth, well done. Must feel great to know you have created a lasting legacy which hopefully will be seen by many generations.
It is a wonderful body of work and deserves to be seen by as many people as possible. Congratulations.
