  • Gem of a small museum with wonderful exhibits. One gallery focused on really old machines to quilt. Another had modern 3D quilted flowers. Another explained and showed the many kinds of quilting...

  • I quilt, so I found this place fascinating. My husband doesn’t, but he enjoyed it too. We saw some amazing art quilts of endangered species in a temporary exhibit, but they asked we not post pictures online. Stop in if you can while that show is up!
  • This is an amazing museum! The docents we met today were very knowledgeable about the quilts in the current exhibit, and it changes on a regular basis so it's a lot of detail to keep up with. Rachel went beyond and showed us a quilt that I had a special interest in, explaining its provenance as well as the restoration techniques that the museum is using to extend its beauty. You can't go wrong with this one!
