Outreach Program

The Museum visits with K-1 children at Discovery Charter School in San Jose and teaches them about quilts.

Sylvia Carroll (the Quilt Lady) and the Museum's dedicated volunteer manager of the Outreach Program has retired. The Museum wishes to thank Sylvia, her husband Art and all the volunteers who for the past 16 years delivered this wonderful quilting program to more than 100,000 2nd and 5th grade students in Santa Clara County. Your gift of time and talent was so generous!

Replacing such a treasure as Sylvia will take some time. While the Museum seeks a new volunteer to manage this program we are putting the program on hiatus. If you have any questions or concerns please email If you know of someone who would like to manage this program please let us know!
