Festivity Sylvia Critcher and The Hope Quilters


“the celebration of something in a joyful and exuberant way”

13th – 30th March 2019





‘Festivity’ sums up the atmosphere of this exhibition where children’s literature is celebrated in stitched textiles. Hope Quilters are a thriving quilting group who meet locally and have worked in conjunction with the library to produce this joyful work.

This exhibition ‘Festivity’ started in 2016 when a small quilt exhibition was created for Seal Library to celebrate the Queens 90th Birthday. Sylvia Critcher and The Hope Quilters have since worked to produce Summer and Festive themed quilts,  displayed in the children’s library at Seal and Sevenoaks 2016 – 2018.

The collection is being shown together for the first time. The Hope Quilters meet in Seal Library on Mondays.

Festivity is in conjunction with Jenny Carter of Sevenoaks Library.


Sylvia will be in the Gallery to chat with you about everything to do with Quilting.

Saturday 23rd March 10 – 3pm

Saturday 30th March 10 – 12pm
