The Parish Piecemakers of St Cedma’s, Larne, are once again running their wonderful exhibition of Advent Quilts.
This unique collection of handcrafted quilts depicts the Christmas story as revealed in the nine lessons of the traditional carol service.
The quilts were created by the group members back in 2016, and were a real labour of love. We paid a visit to the nimble-fingered group as they were putting the finishing touches to the quilts in preparation for their first exhibition, and you can read about that in our diocesan magazine Connor Connections (Autumn 2016) issue.
They have been a popular display at Christmas each year since that first exhibition – even the pandemic didn’t stop the group, who moved the exhibition online in 2020 – their video receiving more than 10,000 views!
This year, St Cedma’s will be open from 2-4pm on Sunday December 12 so people can see and enjoy these quilts which tell so beautifully the story of that first Christmas. Please note that Covid-19 guidelines will be in place (as below).
