|The White Bluffs Quilt Museum is a Regional Textile Arts Center, serving the Tri-Cities and the Mid-Columbia Basin. The Center serves both as a museum and a support organization for the Quilting, Spinning, Weaving and Basketry Guilds of Eastern Washington. These groups have been a part of this community for over 40 years and represent over 1,000 fiber artists.
Thanks to the generosity of the Benton County Commissioners, the Center received funding to lease a store front in 2007. In May of 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 textile marketplace. All classes and events are held at this facility.
The White Bluffs goal is to acquire 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 as American art forms; and to enhance our community by providing a welcoming place where people can share their knowledge and heritage.
Community economic development as a result of advertised textile events is an important part of our mission. Bringing in visitors from a 200+ mile radius, provides a measurable impact on the merchants in this area.
Special programs are available for tour groups and visiting organizations.
