  • We went to the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles. This is a well managed museum. There is a very nice collection of quilts to see. It is in the SOFA area of San Jose.

  • Wow! I've never been here before. I made my first visit today. There are some really amazing quilts and tapestries. A lot of the artists are from northern california. Really interesting. I will be back.
  • Was super interesting. Lots of different art work to look at. Great place to go to when visiting the area.
