Out in the middle of the Tillamook farm country sits the Latimer Quilt & Textile Center. It is located in a fully restored 1939 schoolhouse, and features many different kinds of quilts, one room is dedicated to quilting, complete with looms and spinning wheels, I enjoyed watching the artists at work in this room. The room adjacent to this one houses quilts on display, a small TV where you can view a video of the history of Latimer and several drawers that you can open and view handkerchiefs, doll patterns and historical memoralbilia.
The room that used to be auditorium at the school is now a museum, no photography is allowed in this room. The staff is very friendly and admission is only $2.50/pp which is an excellent value for this historical and educational Tillamook attraction.
There is also a small gift shop where you can purchse homemade items, books and souvenirs of the Latimer Quilt Center. If you love fabrics, quilts and sewing don't miss this place while in the Tillamook area.
