Quilting is not merely a craft; it is a form of storytelling, a means of preserving cultural heritage, and a testament to the ingenuity and creativity of generations past and present.

In this exhibition, you will encounter a diverse array of quilts, each bearing the imprint of its maker’s hands and heart. As you wander through our galleries, you will discover quilts that speak to themes of community, identity, and memory.

We invite you to consider the stories embedded within each stitch and the connections forged through these treasured communal traditions.
