Description

Changing Minds around the World is a collection of 40 quilted wallhangings showing how quilt artists can look at the same photograph and find alternative meanings and inspirations.  In an evocative and moving way, it parallels how people living with dementia can identify different subjects and themes in a quilt which can trigger memories.  The quilts have been made by quilters from around the world and as you move through the quilt journey, you will see what inspired or connected with each stitcher.

An accompanying display of quilts, bags, cushions, and much more, has been produced by quilters throughout Dumfries and Galloway, with many of these items being for sale.
