The museum was unable to financially support itself. It went out of business. At this time, I believe the space is being rented out for special events, but nothing else is going on there.

Four Skis is correct. Attendance was a small fraction of that needed to pay expenses.

However, the collection will eventually be displayed at a new Museum(the 'Campus of History') at President and Marietta Avenues. Projected opening date is Spring 2013. See www.lancasterhistory.org

thefourskis, thanks so much for your answer. What a shame - the museum

was full of wonderful quilts. I am very sorry that it is closed.

Greetings,

Quiltlover -

Looks like you travel extensively. Will you be coming to Lancaster for the 3012 Quilt Show and Contest sponsored by AQS?

Hi June, yes, I will come again with a little group of fellow quilters - can´t wait!!

I feel so sorry, that the museum could not survive right in downtown. It was perfect during Quilters week - just in the neighborhood. But I understand, that just one busy week a year is not enough....
