Beginning in 1987, Quilt Discovery Days were held all over the state of Wisconsin, revealing a wealth of quilts both made in Wisconsin and brought here by their owners. In 1999, ninety-eight of these quilts were featured in the book Wisconsin Quilts: Stories in the Stitches, by Ellen Kort. The book received the Wisconsin Library Award, and was reprinted once. A second revised edition was published in 2008. In 2001 the WQHP purchased an 1850s farmstead near Cedarburg, Wisconsin, to facilitate our mission to educate the public about quilts and fiber arts, to preserve the data gathered in the quilt searches as well as our growing collection of textiles, and to preserve the farm buildings themselves. This has become the Wisconsin Museum of Quilts and Fiber Arts.

If you're having trouble getting a message to go through, here are some tips to try:
1) Check the "caps lock" on your keyboard. The "ReCaptcha" key is case sensitive.
2) Click the first red button (two arrows making a circle that reads "Get a new challenge" when you hover your mouse over it). This will give you the new words to type in. You can click this multiple times until you get two words that you can read.
Thanks and we look forward to hearing from you!
