Mission Statement

The Virginia Quilt Museum exists to celebrate and nurture Virginia's quilting heritage by collecting and preserving quilts from Virginia for the benefit of the public for educational purposes, to be accessible to them through regular exhibition and maintained for future generations. The museum focuses on the role and significance of quilts in social and cultural history and emphasizes the aesthetic value of quilting as an art form while facilitating research in the fields of history and art.

Description

The Virginia Quilt Museum prides itself on bringing the history of the quilt in Virginia to the public as both a history and an art museum. With exhibits as diverse as the quilting community itself, the Museum seeks to make this special form of textile art accessible to the public. The Museum exists to highlight Virginia's rich quilting history and foster that tradition into the future. Located in the historic Warren-Sipe House, the Museum is a short walk away from the restaurants, shops, and other museums of downtown Harrisonburg.
