Museums at Night 'Spledid Shreds of Silk & Satin'

Museums at Night 'Spledid Shreds of Silk & Satin'


It’s Museums at Night time again! Come along after hours for a unique opportunity to view the patchwork quilt worked on by the Brontë sisters and their Aunt Branwell, rarely displayed due to its size and fragility. We will also be joined by members of the Totley Brook Quilters from Sheffield, who produced a replica quilt for Charlotte’s bicentenary in 2016, which they are now kindly donating to the Museum. This special evening will provide an insight into the sisters’ needlework, particularly Emily’s, and the work involved in creating the replica.
