Museum purchase

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.
