As we prepare to launch into our Silver Anniversary year in 2012, it seemed a fitting time to polish up and improve our website. (Twenty-five years ago our Founding Mothers probably couldn't have imagined the idea of a website, nor would they have had the faintest idea what a "blog" was!)
We're hoping this new look will be easier to read, easier to navigate and easier to update. We want you to feel welcome, both on this website and (of course) at the New England Quilt Museum. To that end, we hope you'll post friendly comments and suggestions here.
More than anything, we hope to see you at NEQM, Showplace for Antique and Contemporary Quilts. The museum is a landmark in the heart of America's historic textile producing region. Over the past twenty-five years, thousands of visitors have strolled the museum's galleries and taken part in classes, special events and ongoing programs.
What unites us all is our love of this wonderful art form. Quilts are like snowflakes: no two are exactly alike. Each quilter brings her own inspired eye to the creation of her piece. The New England Quilt Museum showcases the very best in antique and contemporary quilts in the hope of inspiring a new generation.
Keep watching the website for news of upcoming exhibits and special events. We very much hope to see you soon!
