Welcome to the
White Bluffs Quilt Museum.

Our current Exhibit:
A Century of Quilts

The great Western movement of the nineteenth century began at the same time that the patchwork quilt
reached its uniquely American form. We believe that quilts are diaries that speak
to us of change, history and family. Hand pieced and quilted, these quilts
are made from wool, cotton and linen.
Celebrate with us the influences of the past and enjoy the repeated
patterns and techniques over the century.

Watch for "All Dolled Up" an exhibit of dolls from around the world, beginning May 1. 2018.

The White Bluffs Quilt Museum is a Regional Textile Arts Center, serving the Tri-Cities and the Mid-Columbia Basin. The Center serves as both a museum and a support organization for the quilting, weaving, spinning and basketry guilds in Eastern Washington State. These groups have been a part of our community for over 40 years and until now - had no place to call home.  We currently represent over 1,000 fiber artists in Eastern Washington and we are growing.

Thanks to the generosity of the Benton County Commissioners, the museum received funding to lease a store front in 2007.  In May 2012, we moved to a larger location in downtown Richland.  This location provides space for classes, meetings and an area dedicated to our museum, gallery and member marketplace.

Our Summer Children's Program, Meetings, Study Groups and all other classes are held at this facility

The White Bluffs goal is to occupy, acquire or build a facility that will serve as a Textile Arts Center for this region. Our mission is to promote and celebrate the art and craft of quilting and textile arts through educational opportunities for children and adults; to preserve the history of textile arts as uniquely American art forms; and to enhance the community by providing a welcoming place where people can share their knowledge and heritage through their love of quilting, weaving, and all other textile arts.

Community economic development, as a result of well publicized textile exhibits and classes is an important part of our mission. Increased traffic and thousands of new visitors provide a measurable impact on the merchants in this area. Our workshops bring in visitors from a 200 mile radius and we provide lists of area hotels.

 
Special programs are available for groups and visiting organizations.

The White Bluffs Quilt Museum is a member of the
Washington Museum Association,
the Richland Chamber and the
Tri-Cities Visitors and Convention Bureau
