This was a high light of our visit to Laconner. I am not a quilt maker, but found the display in this old Victorian house amazing! It was a moving experience to see the results of the passion of the quilt artists. Splendid!

We did not previously think of the Pacific Northwest as a center for contemporary fiber arts. Found some really impressive work in the current exhibits.
