Shenandoah Valley Quilt Trail
In early 2011, several business sites --Patchwork Plus, Thomas House Restaurant, The Shops of the Dayton Farmers Market, The Shenandoah Heritage Farmers Market, The Virginia Quilt Museum, Hardesty-Higgins House and Hess Furniture--hosted painted wooden quilt squares as a community test to see if there was interest in a quilt trail for the area. November of 2011 a small but enthusiastic committee was formed to formulate what is now the Shenandoah Valley Quilt Trail.

VQM Goes to Blacksburg!
Coloring College Avenue, part of "Minds Wide Open - Children in Art" invited young artists to paint on the town's Main Street. VQM President, Paula Golden saw this as an advertising opportunity for our museum and invited two talented young artists to paint our logo on the street.

Art in the Park
On Saturday, August 25th, the Virginia Quilt Museum co-sponsored an Art in the Park event with the Arts Council of the Valley. Children were invited to make their own mini quilts using fabric squares, felt and fabric glue. The museum provided lots of colorful fabric cut into shapes and squares.
Art in the Park coincides with the Harrisonburg Farmers’ Market and takes place adjacent to Turner Pavilion and is offered one Saturday a month April through October.
