“World Class Fiber Art and Antiquities with Changing Exhibits”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

You have to see the quality, the diversity in multiple layers, embellished and/or pieced work in textiles both traditional, graphic and "cutting edge" stitch techniques by hand and/or machine.... that this institution delivers as an extraordinary experience for the trained and untrained eye!!!!!

Exhibits change on the quarter of every season. It is always a pleasure to see a new exhibit arrive and sad to see the previous exhibit move on. Local quilt guild, colorado Valley Quilt guild lovingly volunteers in the archival administered hanging as testiment of this institutioon and the artist who made the quilts share.

The 19th Period Garden is as fabulous in palette, species, butterflies and birds as are the fiber art! Enjoy the shade of this town garden among the fragrant clend of its native flora and fauna. which is open day or night.

The staff kindly supports each visitors experience with knowledgeable contributions and travel information about the area. Visitors include reknown artist themselves who willingly share constructive critiques and inspire new work!

Gotta see this in your life time and return often for more!!!!!

“What a hidden treasure!”
Reviewed March 14, 2014 via mobile

Totally blown away by the quilts on exhibit! Winners (about 20?) from the 2013 IQF in Houston. Knowledgeable docent who showed me the back of a quilt I was admiring. They have new exhibits very 3 months. A great day trip from the Houston area!

“Artistry with Fabric!”
Reviewed March 6, 2014 via mobile

A wonderful selection of quilts! From the fanciful to the abstract, the quilts are displayed in three rooms. When walking in, the main room has balconies around three sides with quilts hung from the second floor on two sides. More quilts line this room with a separate gallery in the back and to one side. These are not your Granny's quilts! From portraits to street scenes to wind chargers, these quilts display a staggering amount of artistry! The building has a sufficiently antique feel to provide an interesting back drop. There are knowledgable volunteers as well as a small gift area. Displays change quarterly.

“Great little museum”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

The quilts were so beautiful, some looked like paintings and landscapes. Very interesting and fun to explore. A little high for a short museum visit ($8) but I'm glad I did it.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

The museum changes their quilt displays every so-often. When we were there, the theme was red, white and blue. I expected to see more traditional hand-quilted quilts but the current displays had quite a bit of painted quiltwork (more like art work than tranditional quilts). At the same time, the painted quiltwork was very impressive and clearly works of art.
