Show Your Passion For Quilting

Whether you love quilting, the arts, or Kentucky's Jackson Purchase region, the National Quilt Museum (NQM) provides an exceptional return for your philanthropic investment. With more than a dozen exhibitions planned, in addition to an array of educational and public programs, NQM promises an engaging and inspiring 2023.

Each year our museum collects and exhibits the work of dozens of the world's finest quilters. Programs like Block of the Month and our summer Quilt Camps provide engagement and educational opportunities to people of all ages, whether they are here in Paducah or around the globe. Your generous support makes all of this possible.

In 2022, NQM added 10 new works to our collection, including quilts by Elsie May Campbell, Aki Sakai, Janet Stone, Valerie C. White and others. Our changing exhibitions highlighted the work of quilters and collectors, including Esterita Austin, Sheila Frampton Cooper, Audrey Esarey, Paula Kovarik, Harold Mailand and Patricia A. Montgomery. More than 23,000 people participated in NQM's Block of the Month Club. Hundreds of young people attended the museum's Junior Quilters program and summer Quilt Camps and participated in the School Block Challenge.

Without your generosity, attention, and good will, the National Quilt Museum would lack both capacity and purpose. We ask that you join us again this winter in another successful Matching Funds Challenge. Once again, we offer our thanks to Moda as our challenge sponsor. With Moda's support, your gift goes even further toward helping ensure a great 2023 for the museum and for those whom we serve.

Moda will generously match gifts made to
NQM in December 2022 and January 2023.
