Quilts take over the pews to create cosy church

The U3A Quilting Group members held an exhibition of their work in St Barnabas’ Church in 2017. The quilts made a dramatic display draped over the backs of the pews. All proceeds went to church charities but putting our organisation in front of the public in such a positive manner was invaluable promotion for U3A.
