Grea Quilt Collection

A great collection of quilts, in a lovely building - all nicely presented. Easy find the building as it is just off the main shopping street. Friendly and helpful staff.

A lovely and historic place that is very well laid out. Normally, I'm not a quilt person but the ambiance of the building combined with the colorful quilts hung throughout made for a very enjoyable visit.

While the quilts on display were all beautifully done and showed the quilter's expertise, they all used newer techniques and were actually small wall hangings versus actual bed quilts. As a new quilter I was hoping to see something more traditional. I went to my state fair the next day and was much happier with what I saw there. While... More

A beautiful museum with rotating shows. The historic home it is in is lovely. Have been here twice and have enjoyed it immensely each time. It is small so it doesn't take a long time to make your way through it.

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.

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.
