Elizabeth Betts will give a talk based on the community quilt project made at Jane Austin's House Museum in Hampshire. Inspired by the coverlet that is on display in the museum which was made by Jane, her sister Cassandra and their mother, over 300 people across the world took part in the making of two quilts based on the author's life story. Elizabeth worked on the project for 11 months as a quilt designer and facilitator.
