About the Museum
The Southeastern Quilt & Textile Museum in Carrollton, Georgia showcases rotating exhibits of quilts and fabrics representing the South’s rich textile and agricultural heritage. It is the only museum in the Southeast dedicated exclusively to textile arts, production and the craft and artistry of quilting.
In 1998, members of the Georgia Quilt Project and The Georgia Quilt Council planned and advocated for the creation of a quilt and textile museum in the southeast. In 2009, The Georgia Quilt Council formally selected Carrollton as the home of what would become the Southeastern Quilt & Textile Museum.
The Southeastern Quilt & Textile Museum has three galleries and is home to more than 150 quilts celebrating their regional and local heritage and influences.
The museum strives to preserve the art and craft of quilting with museum quality archiving and conservation. Informative exhibits change quarterly. A research library provides over 2500 volumes currently as well as many periodicals.
The museum also offers quilting classes for all levels of quilters. Each summer a Kids Camp teaches children (age 9 and older) to operate a sewing machine, hand sew, cut patterns, design, and quilt.
They also recognize and celebrate current trends in quilting. From exhibits on machine appliqué to art quilts to modern interpretations of old patterns, they share the latest trends in quilting.
