A truly special place restored with loving hands by volunteers. The house is very interesting to see and then the changing displays make you want to come back for another visit! On your trip to LaConner don't miss this just one street off the main street.

Lovely and inspiring displays and a charming volunteer working at the door. Wish that I'd had more time to spend looking at the fibre art works on display.

Just went to the Quilt & Textile Museum today. It is housed in the beautiful Gaches Mansion overlooking La Conner. The volunteer who greeted us was very helpful and gave us lots of interesting information about the house and the exhibits. The quilts and textile art on display were gorgeous - a delightful array that had us oohing and ahhing!... More

The quilt exhibit was great. The house is neat to look at. It was worth the drive and entry fee. We were able to find parking right at the house.

A friend who is a talented quilter and I checked out the exhibits at this marvelous museum. Carrel Bryer Fallert's exhibition is, literally, breathtaking. I assume her fans need no further comment. There were other interesting displays, and the museum store on the second floor of this restored 19th century home is sure to gladden the hearts of quilters everywhere.

Beautiful showing of fine art textiles by a variety of artists. Wide variety presented from traditonal to modern. Some had beads, button and other objects in them. The building adds to the beauty of the exhibit.

Very well preserved. Also home of the Quilt Museum. If you quilt, this is a must see. I did not go thru the house, my wife did. Could not go up steps, due to bad hip. Sorry I cant say more.

For lovers of textile art and architecture, a visit to this museum is a must see! The mansion is well restored and its history wonderfully told by the woman who greeted us. If you like listening to history of homes and have time, she has many stories to share. The exhibits were so beautiful. I could only marvel at the... More

The gal at the front desk was an absolute delight. The mansion itself has been amazingly preserved. Even if the quilts themselves aren't your cup of tea, they are displayed nicely and the history of the house itself is a sight to behold.

A real piece of Skagit history. The Gaches mansion (a stunning Victorian) is lovely and was remodeled well. The quilts were very cool too! They have some very old ones as well as new ones on display. Changes frequently.
