In just two years of existence, the Texas Quilt Museum has surprised even its co-founders by attracting more than 20,000 visitors from all 50 states and 38 countries as well as more than 300 bus groups to its home in scenic La Grange, Texas.
And in addition to thrilling and educating seasoned quilters, art lovers, and the curious alike, the Museum has featured many debut and/or exclusive exhibits, which change out each season. The Museum’s winter 2014 offerings will include “Semper Tedium,” “SAQA: People and Portraits,” and “Winners from the 2013 Quilts: A World of Beauty” judged show.
The Texas Quilt Museum is housed in two historic 1890s buildings, which provide a fine showcase for both antique and contemporary quilt art with their high ceilings, brick walls, and original hardwood floors.
Home for the new museum is the picturesque Central Texas town of La Grange, located on the winding Colorado River between two major highways, making it within easy driving distance of the state’s major cities and airline hubs.
And while the Texas Quilt Museum may be located in Texas, it’s a museum that features great quilt art, both traditional and contemporary, from all over the world…for visitors from all over the world.
