Sneak Peak Pic from San Jose

San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles posted this photo on Facebook yesterday. It's a sneak peak at "Collecting New York Beauty Quilts, Bill Volckening's Passion", an exhibition of quilts from my collection, which opens Saturday.

San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles is the first museum in the United States to focus exclusively on quilts and textiles as an art form. The museum celebrated its 35th anniversary in 2012. A printed exhibition catalogue will soon be available. For more info about the museum including hours and location, click here.
