WMQFA is a quilter's paradise, but that is not all! Find a variety of rotating fiber arts exhibits, classes for all ages, fun events for everyone, a great gift shop, and an event space that can be used for workshops to weddings.

This is a nice quilt museum with a great expanse of quilts, going as far back as the Civil War era. We enjoyed it.
