International Quilt Study Center & Museum
The mission of the International Quilt Study Center & Museum is to collect, preserve, study, exhibit, and promote discovery of quilts and quiltmaking traditions from many cultures, countries, and times.
We envision the International Quilt Study Center & Museum as a dynamic center of formal and informal learning and discovery for students, teachers, scholars, artists, quilters, and others. Our comprehensive and accessible collection of quilts, related textiles and documents form a primary text for study, insight, and inspiration.
Our academic home is within the Department of Textiles, Clothing and Design in the College of Education and Human Science. The Institute for Agriculture and Natural Resources also provides support for the research and outreach efforts of the Quilt Center.
