About Us

The Wisconsin Museum of Quilts & Fiber Arts, located just east of historic downtown Cedarburg, Wisconsin, is dedicated to educating the public about the artistic, cultural, historic and social importance of quilts and fiber arts. The museum’s roots extend back to 1988. Since then, the museum has documented over 8,000 quilts. In addition to quilt documentation, the WMQFA collects and displays important historical fiber arts.

CLASSES, WORKSHOPS, AND LEARNING EXPERIENCES

The Wisconsin Museum of Quilts & Fiber Arts offers lectures and classes for all adults, beginner to advanced. These learning experiences are led by a variety of teachers from all over the world.

Events

The Wisconsin Museum of Quilts & Fiber Arts is the only museum devoted to the creation, education and preservation of time-honored fiber arts in Wisconsin. In 2011, we restored our 1850's barn for use as an exhibition gallery, classrooms, collections storage and general purpose. Visit us at one of our upcoming events!
