  • Very unique and interesting examples of period craftsmanship, its evolution and the machine ages effect on it. Beautiful examples of coverlets and the tools used in its manufacturing are on display...  more »
  • Lovely surprise. Don’t be fooled by the building appearance; it is open. Park on the side and enter through the front door. I thought I would be looking at quilts but was property educated otherwise.....  more »
  • Beautiful coverlets and incredibly knowledgeable staff. The gentleman in the office explained everything we wanted to know about the dye process and how much the coverlets must have cost when they were made. The colors on display and the patterns were absolutely astounding. I also really enjoyed the old school it was in.
  • WOW! What a great place. The coverlet collection is amazing. Also a great collection of spinning wheels, looms, and yarn winders. Be sure to have Laszlo give you his talk. We even got to go in the back where they were fixing up some old looms. A delightful visit.
