Programs: Each year the Museum exhibits a number of eclectic and exciting artists and their work. Exhibitions have included an exploration of traditional Vietnamese Ao Dai, Afghan war rugs, Contemporary Art Quilts, traditional quilts, Apilleras from South America, Story Cloths from the Hmong peoples, message quilts from communities creating visibility through art to today's pressing issues. The Museum provides arts education programs through its popular Kids Create!, in-school programs and Arts Express - reaching the next generation of artists and art lovers.

The Museum provides a serious venue for all artists working with textiles. Its exhibits and programs promote the appreciation of quilts and textiles as art and provide an understanding of their role in the lives of their makers, in cultural traditions, and as historical documents.
