Please join us for a day of music, art, and history centered around the love of quilting!

Which quilt(s) should I bring?

The Wisconsin Museum of Quilts and Fiber Arts documents all quilts that currently live in Wisconsin. They don't have to be old, and they don't have to have been made in Wisconsin.

Bring the ones you know the most information about. Part of the Museum's mission is to preserve the stories for future generations.

In order to be able to serve as many people as possible, the limit is 3 quilts.

Being held in conjunction with American Quilts: Selections from the Winterthur Collection.
