2016 Season Opening
Featuring the unveiling of vQM's new Conservation Room!

Come help us celebrate the kick-off of our 2016 Season on Tuesday, February 2nd!

To some, February 2nd, 2016 will simply be Groundhog Day. For us at the VQM, February 2nd is much more - it is our Opening Day of the 2016 Season!

New Exhibits will be opened and guests will be invited to view the unveiling of our new "conservation lab"! Visitors are encouraged to bring in a quilt from their own collections to the lab for an abbreviated version of our "Talk About Quilts" quilt assessment program. For our smaller visitors, make a Groundhog quilt block at the Children's Quilt Corner and get your picture taken next to your favorite quilt!

Trivia Teaser -  A free VQM pen or magnet to anyone who can tell us where in the movie "Groundhog Day" there is a special quilt sighting! A free guest pass if you can tell us what the pattern is on the quilt!
