San Jose Quilt Museum

“Dear Friends,

This week is our Anniversary: 35 years ago our Museum made its first steps into the world. In 1977, the Santa Clara Valley Quilt Association first opened the doors as the American Museum of Quilts and Related Arts in a storefront in Los Altos. Click here for more on our legacy.

Share your memories of the museum with us on our Facebook page or come on down and tell us directly at one of our upcoming events: South First Fridays (June 1), Celebrating the Art of Quiltmaking (June 6), or Kids Create: Baskets (June 10)–details are below. And don’t forget about our new and ground-breaking exhibition of large scale pictorial tapestries by Mark Adams, a prolific Bay Area artist known for his role in the Bay Area fiber art renaissance of the 1960s-1980s (on view through July 29, 2012).

Finally, we’d like to invite you to follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook for behind-the-scenes images, insights and up-to-the minute updates on our exhibits, collections and whats going on in the world of art quilts and textiles!
Christine Jeffers
Executive Director
