La Conner, Washington


The mission of the Pacific Northwest Quilt & Fiber Arts Museum is to present exhibitions and educational programs in all fiber arts that enrich and inspire, honor cultural traditions, and celebrate the creative spirit. Housed in an 1891 historic Victorian mansion in a small Washington coastal town, the Museum presents exhibits of quilts – traditional, modern, pictorial, etc. – and other fiber arts, such as needlework, knitting, basketry, felting, etc. Also offered are classes in all areas of fiber arts at varying levels of expertise. Each Spring the Museum hosts FiberFest, a two-day sale event for the quilter & fiber artist, with vendors of unique, often hand-screened fabrics and related-items. The annual three-day International Quilt & Fiber Arts Festival is held each year in October at the Edward D. Hansen Conference Center in Everett, WA. It features quilts and fiber arts pieces juried in from international and national artists, as well as presenting an exhibit of newly acquisitioned pieces to the Permanent Collection, workshops and marketplace.
