A display of quilts donated by the Canadian Red Cross to the bombed out families of Britain in World War II. A story of selfless endeavour to provide warmth and comfort to thousands by the women of Canada.This is  going to be well worth a visit and a testament to the warmth and friendship still found between our nations. I have loaned some artifacts to this exhibition. The main exhibition is in the Bentliff gallery with other pieces in the cafe and costume gallery.
