The Museum’s collection focuses exclusively on quilts and textiles as an art form. 

Over the last 39 years, the Museum has created a collection of some 850 quilts, garments and ethnic textiles, and a research library of more than 500 books on the history and making of quilts and textiles, all housed in a 13,000 square foot renovated historic 1923 property. 

Each year the Museum presents several original exhibitions that feature contemporary and traditional artists.
