North Country Quilts: In Celebration of New Acquisitions

North Country Quilts: In Celebration of New Acquisitions


20 March 2021 - 19 September 2021

This exhibition will celebrate the quilting traditions of northern England by showcasing historical and contemporary quilts that are among the finest examples of the craft acquired by the Museum in the last 20 years. 

North Country quilts have been made throughout the region for over 200 years, with characteristics including patterns being stitched through the layers, subtly creating softly sculptured surfaces.  

Contemporary textile artists now reference this tradition within their work, which will be reflected in the exhibition. 

Other examples will include a 19th century strippy quilt made by Hannah Hauxwell’s grandmother, wholecloth, pieced and chintz quilts as well as coverlets and much more. 

Curated by Joanna Hashagen, The Bowes Museum's Curator of Fashion and Textiles, and Dorothy Osler, Author and Exhibition Consultant, the exhibition will be accompanied by a catalogue. 

The Bowes Museum is closed!


All of us at The Bowes Museum are really sad to announce that we have had to close until Wednesday 2 December in line with new national restrictions.

As a result, we have been forced to cancel events that were due to take place during this time. If you have a ticket for an event or entry to the Museum before this date, you will be contacted to arrange a refund or to make an alternative booking. All Christmas activities including the Christmas Market and Santa’s Grotto are expected to go ahead as planned.

Happily, we are still able to welcome walkers and cyclists to the Park and Gardens as usual, including the Playground area, and cars will be admitted between 10.00 and 4.00 daily.

We have so loved welcoming people into the building again, safely enjoying our displays, eating in Café Bowes and browsing in our shop, so please in the meantime keep safe and we hope to see you back again soon.
