My wife is an avid quilter so this was a real treat for her. Quality of quilts was from fantastic to mediocre. But the best ones were worth the visit, just incredible. Wish they would allow photos so we could share the experience with others.

We have a truck and RV parking lot on second street behind the museum. As long as there are places available you should be fine. RV's park back there every day.
