History of the Quilt & Textile Museum
The collection was begun in 2000 by Marilyn Woodin,
an avid quilt collector, and former curator of the museum.
Since that time, the collection has expanded and is now kept
in humidity & light controlled rooms.
Many exhibitions also see the loan of quilts from other museums
to complete a theme or collection.
Quilt & Textile Museum
is the meeting place for the
Iowa Illinois Quilt Study Group
The mission of IIQSG is to create and establish a place
for sharing research and learning about quilts and related textiles;
to network with local, state, and international historians;
and to encourage historical preservation of quilts with an appreciation of the social, historical, cultural and aesthetic influence of quilts and quilt makers.
