My husband and I really enjoyed the quilt Museum. I wish we could have taken pictures but that isn't allowed. I had been once before, but this exhibit was new. All quilters should make an effort to come here.

We have a truck and RV parking lot on second street behind the museum. As long as there are places available you should be fine. RV's park back there every day.
