Came to see the On Death exhibit as well as the lace. The quilts were magnificent art pieces and the lace was fantaastic. The ladies working there were very helpful, and the space itself is open, airyy and really comfortable. I look forward to returning.

Last summer I brought my California cousin here, as she is an enthusiastic and experienced quilter. Really enjoyed the displays and gift shop. Sometime soon Implan to take one of their classes.

I've known about this place since it's beginning, but sometimes it's hard to be a tourist in your own town and visit what is just around the corner. Luckily we had guests in town and we took them here. It is nice that their exhibit...More

Unlike other quilt museums, WMQFA is a fiber art museum, so we exhibit textiles of all kinds, including quilts, knitted items, weavings, embroidery, and more. During your visit, the museum's exhibition was Coverlets and Stevengraphs, which is why the exhibited items were primarily woven. We...More
