This year's silent auction, Little Quilts, Big Talents, invited quilters from across the nation to make a small piece to be auctioned. All proceeds from this event go to the support of VQM.
The lower level of the museum is transformed to an English tea room several times each year. Fundraisers for the museum, these are special events with good food, pleasant company, and a brief program.
Our 2014 raffle quilt is in progress!
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 contact Meegan Carr, Executive Director, with any questions.
Quilt Study Roundtable
Several times annually, the museum sponsors presentations by well known quilters and quilt historians on quilts through history, dating of quilts, conservation and care, and specific quilters from the past.
Classes are periodically held at VQM for adults wanting to learn new techniques, for children at all levels of sewing skills, and for groups such as Girl Scouts.
