This year's silent auction, Little Quilts, Big Talents, invites quilters from across the nation to make a small quilt, fiber art, or fabric related item to be auctioned off to benefit the Museum. All proceeds from this event support the Virginia Quilt Museum, a 501(c)3 nonprofit. We hope you will bid on or donate an item to help us continue our mission of celebrating Virginia's quilting heritage. Please help us spread the word about the auction by telling all your friends and family. You can even share us on Facebook and tweet us on Twitter. Thank you for your support!
Tickets go on sale for our beautiful Civil War sampler quilt "Civil War Tribute" on February 3, 2015. This year we thank the Cabin Branch Quilters for their donation of time, talent, and fabrics to create such stunning quilt. "Civil War Tribute" was originally made in 2010 and raffled off to benefit the ARC of Prince William. This beautiful sampler is king size (98" x 100") and is machine pieced and long arm quilted.
Special guided group tours can be arranged for adults and children. Prescheduled groups of 10 or more qualify for a discounted admission rate. To schedule your group’s visit, please complete a Group Tour Request Form and submit it to the Museum at least three (3) weeks before you would like to visit. Once your tour date has been approved and scheduled, you will receive a confirmation letter. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
