“What I make with my hands, I give of my heART!”

At the Museum we celebrate “works of heART” of textile and quilt artists. Every day you get a chance to see quilts and fiber art made by masters, and then use your hands to create in our Community Gallery, at a Meet & Make, or one of our many fiber art classes.

We share our love of the craft with survivors of domestic violence teaching them how to heal and express the creativity deep in their heARTs.

We create a warm and welcoming space where everyone can explore, have fun and witness the stories and artistry of traditional and new fiber art. With your help, we can continue to share and preserve the amazing work of established and emerging artists.

Please support the San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles on SVGives day of giving on May 6th and during our spring appeal season through June 15. Together we can ensure that the Museum has the necessary financial resources to present powerful compelling exhibitions and fun, creative participatory experiences.

Our goal for this campaign is $75,000! A little goes a long way when you give from your heART!

$25 = a child’s first experience with stitching
$50 = a stash of fabric for a survivor of domestic violence
$75 = a free craft experience the Community Gallery
$125= keeping a warm and welcoming atmosphere by taking care of our facility
$250= financial support for artists who give their time and talent to the museum
$500= the preservation and care for the 850+ quilts and textiles in our collection
$1,000 and above=ensures that we have the tools and resources to create powerful and compelling exhibitions

Giving is easy! You can make your gift by clicking on the DONATE NOW button on this page or mail a check to the Museum.

Please help us meet our goals and close the fiscal year in the black by June 30th!
