I’ve found the world of quilts and textiles is much more complex and creative than I ever imagined. The shows are beautifully curated and always informative.
— Mary Crabbe

As we prepare to celebrate our 40th Anniversary next year, the San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles continues to promote and celebrate fiber arts. Through generous donations, SJMQT has expanded programs and offerings to the community. 

SJMQT has become a cultural leader in the local community. With a variety of exhibitions and programming,  we have increased community involvement and enrichment, not only with the fiber arts community but with the wider community of San Jose. Our stability results from the loyal dedication and hard work of staff, volunteers and the generosity of individuals like you!

Over the next year, as we celebrate being a nexus for those who share a passion and deep commitment to fiber arts preservation and evolution, we encourage you to make a donation. 



An example of what your donations can do for SJMQT:

-Eighteen $40.00 donations will pay for one show's vinyl lettering for our exhibitions.

-$20.00 buys hanging hardware for mounting an artist's pieces. 

-$20.00 will pay for fabric glue, craft paper, and pencils for children to be able to use while they learn valuable art skills.

-Four $50.00 donations would pay for a sewing machine that our Artist in Residences could use for their work in SJMQT.

-$50.00 would help us pay for the installations materials needed to hang the Artist in Residence's art. Items include support labels, museum putty, and hanging hardware.

-$500.00 supports an Artist in Residence for one month. The Residency runs for three months.
