In 1997, quilter and La Conner resident Rita Hupy founded the La Conner Quilt Museum on the second floor of the historic Gaches Mansion. Rita was just one of a growing community of quilters who were seeking a space in which to display their work and the works of other quilters from across the United States and beyond. By early 2005, the Museum had hosted over 64 exhibits of work from regional, national and internationally-known quilters and fiber artists, and by 2008 – as one of only 14 quilt museums in the entire country – the Museum had become a significant contributor to the preservation of quilt and textile art. To celebrate our 20 years the name has been changed to showcase the regional impact of the museum, housed in the Historic Landmark Gaches Mansion, the permanent collection includes quilts and textiles ranging in age from 1820 to Contemporary works.
