On opening the door to White Bluffs Quilt Museum is to be transported to an aura of calm, welcoming "at home" feeling. This non-profit organization successfully blends their mission of preserving our unique American art form of quilting and fiber arts with teaching those skills to adults and to children. I've seen parents sign their children up for a sewing class and be so impressed that they come back asking for an adult class. Our childrens summer classes are very popular. Membership grows each and every year.
The leadership of the Board drives our success. We are an active part of the community by participating in local organization's events. And, as an example, a local grocer sponsors White Bluffs' annual "made before your eyes" Mother's Day pie sale.
White Bluffs is working with the local government in identifying a new site for an architecturaly designed building and grounds as a working museum demonstrating the plant to fiber to finished product sequence .

This is the most efficient non-profit I have ever worked with. At this time there are no paid staff and every penny raised is put to good use in the community, paying for educational programs, after school programs, adult classes and community service projects. Their Summer Children's Program is well known and all teachers volunteer their time. If a child cannot afford to pay, scholarships are available. White Bluffs is working closely with the City of West Richland to build a Textile Arts Center. In this small community, it would be a much needed asset and an economic stimulus.
