  • A must see! You will not be disappointed. Would love to go back and see the quilts again. Fabulous!!! Go before the show comes down. An intimate museum with a generous size quilt library. Friendly staff. Stocked shop with grab bags for $3-8. Fun. Pictured are one of a great collection not to be missed!!! A jewel of a museum, introducing a folk art form of great beauty. Saw 2 great shows, including one on gun ownership & gun violence: kudos! Extensive museum shop.
  • Several good exhibits, including different mediums of art quilting, thought provoking exhibit on guns/gun violence and miniature quilts. The gun exhibit wasn't ideally what we would've preferred to have seen, however the other exhibits were wonderful. It is a nice little museum, honoring, celebrating and preserving our craft. Will definitely go back for future exhibits. Very reasonably priced.
