Quilter's Nirvana

Lovely collection with every changing exhibits and extremely friendly and helpful staff. Just be aware that you can't use a flash for photos.

I really enjoyed visiting this museum. The beautifully preserved quilts are amazing but it's so much more than just quilts; it's art and history too. I will definitely go back next time we're in town for a football game.

This June they had a special exhibit of quilting from around the globe. Beautiful works of art that are done with fabric. There are guides available to explain the works. One was so fine that I thought it was painted on the wall!!

We were not treated well when we entered the museum. We were sternly warned not to touch any quilts. We're a group of educated, traveled and talented women. We weren't going to use the quilts to blow our noses! Our rude greeting had a negative impact on our overall impression of the museum, but the exhibits are lovely.

So many quilts, designs, I am amazed and impressed how ladies did such fine work! My Grandmother that got in the book had 12 children. This is a top notch museum.

This is a wonderful museum of quilts on display for our enjoyment. They rotate the many quilts that they own so if you are in the area you could see many different quilts.

This is not a show of quilts- so if you you are looking for rows of quilts you will be disappointed. But at the museum you will see quilts that have historical importance. I saw quilts that had eastern influences. The docent explained in detail why those quilts carried those shapes or colors etc. One exhibit was on War and... More

Visited the museum on a Sunday when they were offering quilt identification. The volunteers and curator were very helpful in dating the quilts and explaining their process. For the small fee they provide written documentation and a quilt label that volunteers sew on, documenting the piece. The museum is nice, it was small than I expected but well curated and... More

My review would have to echo many of the others. This is a gorgeous new glassy building. The quilts on hand were immaculate and the signs on hand were educational. There are not as many displayed as you might think, in such a large building. The virtual displays that our local host told us about were not available, due to... More
