Comfort From Kindness

Comfort From Kindness

Comfort from Kindness returns to the show showcasing their fantastic Canadian Red Cross heritage quilts. Amidst the hardships and uncertainty of WWII came warm, colourful quilts from abroad; thousands of Canadian women created quilts for Britain as part of their contribution to the war effort to ease the plight of people struggling with the conditions of war. Part of this large collection will be on display with unique storyboards giving an insightful narrative about its creation and destination.

The Quilts will be situated on the balcony of the hall, where you can spend plenty of time admiring these beautiful, historic creations, in addition, Tony Mansi the organizer of these displays will be on hand to tell you stories and explain some of the works in more detail.
