Patchwork and Quilting on Anglesey

by Dorothy Russell
(Llandegfan, Anglesey)

Anglesey has a little advertised cultural activity which is now attracting a lot of national and international acclaim, especially following the much vaunted Exhibition at the Victoria & Albert Museum.


The Island is home to lots of quilters and boasts two specialist shops (Tan Lan and Copperfield) supplying all their needs, as well as enough other fabric and sewing machine shops to make people from all over the UK very jealous.

Wales has for centuries been associated with patchwork and quilting and, through its emigrants, has influenced the spread of Welsh based quilting styles around the world.

There are quilters groups dotted around Anglesey, one of the most recent is based in Moelfre (very welcoming to new members!) and award winning speaker and quilt teacher, Dorothy Russell.

Dorothy lives in Llandegfan, teaches both her own local groups and visitors staying at her holiday cottage.
