Quilt Discovery Day

Have you found “lost” quilts in your home? Do you want to know a little more about “Auntie’s” quilts? The Virginia Quilt Museum is now offering “Quilt Discovery Days”. The Museum’s Curator/Registrar, Gloria Comstock, will be utilizing her vast knowledge of textiles, quilts, and history to help you discover the secrets of your quilt.

Quilts will be “discovered” on a first come, first served basis and individuals will be limited to three (3) quilts. Individuals will be required to complete a survey form for each quilt upon registration.
