  Known as the Quilt Capitol of Iowa, Kalona is the home of the Quilt & Textile Museum
located in the Kalona Historical Village Welcome Center.
The museum features two nationally acclaimed galleries, one for Amish textiles,
and a second with an every changing theme for English (non-Amish) pieces.
New exhibits are created every three months, so if you have visited the museum in the past,
chances are you will discover something new with each visit.

    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.
