Mission Statement

"Cultivate and Preserve the Quilting Arts in Virginia"

Description

Founded in 1995, The Virginia Quilt Museum is the Official Quilt Museum of the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Nestled in the heart of the picturesque Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, the Museum promotes a unique blend of Virginia’s art and cultural heritage. Charged with a mission of "celebrating and nurturing Virginia's quilting heritage," the Museum offers three floors of rotating, curated gallery space. Each round of exhibits features quilts from the Museum’s collection as well as traveling exhibitions. Heirloom quilts, contemporary quilts and art quilts are also typically featured simultaneously, allowing our visitors the chance to marvel at the extreme variety of styles, techniques, and themes present in quilts.

The Museum cares about education and regularly offers classes, demonstrations, and workshops for the community to participate in. Additionally, to help support the goal of preservation, multiple times a year, the museum hosts Quilt Evaluation days where community members can bring in personal quilts and have them assessed to learn about the history of the quilt, when it was made, what kind of fabric was used, etc.
