About Our Organization
Simply put, our Mission Statement is: To preserve quilts and educate people about this heritage art form.
Since 2009, Quilt Heritage Museum, Inc. has been collecting and preserving quilts and sharing information about them. We believe handmade items which take significant hours to create deserve to be preserved for current and future generations. Quiltmakers are influenced by so may issues of our time: social issues, economic issues, and political issues, to name a few.
- Our quilt collections are divided into two basic categories: Antique and Contemporary. The oldest quilt in our Antique Collection is dated circa 1857.
- Our Steering Committee meets monthly (except in December) and is pivotal to all goals and activities of the Museum Effort. Committee Members represent a broad knowledge base of both antique and contemporary quilting aspects. Together they have more than 250 years of quilting experience. In addition, several members frequently loan the Museum quilts from their private collections for educational and exhibit purposes. We welcome anyone who shares our interest in quilting--no matter the style or method.
Currently, the most important issue facing our organization is finding a brick-and-mortor location. It's great to share our collections with the public, but it will be even greater when we have a dedicated space in which to do so. Check the "How To Help" section below to learn more.
