Iowa QuiltScape for January 15, 2021

Virtual Iowa Quiltscape Series

Join us each Tuesday at Twelve for a live program from the Iowa Quilt Museum. Some weeks will focus on our current exhibit, String Theory, while other weeks will focus on various aspects of the quilting landscape (or Quiltscape) in Iowa.

Our January 19th session will feature two of our exhibit contributors, Roderick Kiracofe & Siobhan Furgurson, and Linzee Kull McCray, exhibit curator.

Roderick is a collector, artist and consultant in the quilting field, and the author of several books including Unconventional and Unexpected: American Quilts Below the Radar 1950-2000.

Siobhan is an AQS certified quilt appraiser, teacher and lecturer.

WINTER Hours at the IQM

Monday – Saturday • 10:00am – 4:00pm
Sundays • Noon – 4:00pm

The Iowa Quilt Museum IS open to visitors and we welcome you to come see this fantastic exhibit in person. With an open floor plan, great ventilation, contactless options for transactions and heightened cleaning procedures, we feel that the Iowa Quilt Museum is a relatively safe place to visit! We know that’s not the right choice for every person, though, so keep reading for opportunities to see more of the Iowa Quilt Museum, and String Theory, in a virtual setting.

“Stay Busy” Sale

IQM Gift Shop (online and in-person)

Last night a blizzard hit Iowa, and the museum isn’t even open today (Jan 15th). In honor of those who are homebound because of the storm (and all those who have been homebound for months because of COVID), we’re reducing some of our favorite items to help you STAY BUSY this winter. The sale will last through the end of January, but these items will keep you busy for the rest of the season!

Share the Iowa Quilt Museum with your friends!

Through the magic of technology, we can bring the Iowa Quilt Museum to your quilt guild, civic group, retirement community or any other interested group. We can share our pre-recorded presentation or even bring you a live program complete with Q&A if you so desire. If you know a program coordinator who is struggling to find material right now, encourage them to contact museum director Megan Barrett to inquire about dates and cost for a virtual program with the IQM!

    Dear Mrs. Brackett,

    thank you very much for your beautiful presentation on Tuesday, as a virtual participant I truly enjoyed it and am excited to be able to see you and all contributors explaining your quilts in detail.
    Sadly, it will be a long time till I will be able to see your quilts personnally, but I’ve added your Museum to my bucket list to see 😉

    Your very grateful viewer vom Vienna, Austria, Europe
