Join with others to finish a journey that began more than 37 years ago with an inspired group of women who had the vision to create the first museum in the United States to focus on quilts and textiles as an art form.

Over the past ten years the Museum board, staff, volunteers, and patrons have worked diligently to realize the dream of a permanent, world-class facility and leave a legacy for future generations.

Fiber artists, art lovers, collectors, quilters, crafters, families, and local community members will always have a place to explore, create, experience, and celebrate quilts and fiber art.

As of September 18, 2014, we’ve raised $665,029.83 in contributions and three generous and kind note holders forgave their notes in the total amount of $107,938. We have $635,437 left to raise by January 2015. As of October 1 we will have paid off 10 lenders decreasing the debt on our beautiful building!

Yes, I want to help realize the dream!

The $1.4 million campaign will pay off the mortgage, eliminating the interest payments that drain resources from the Museum’s mission to produce the kind of visitor experiences that contribute to a vibrant, creative community.

As we celebrate our 37th year we urge you to join us over the next 37 weeks to realize the dream of a permanent, world-class fiber arts institution.
