New Museum Opens in Georgia

New Museum Opens in Georgia

By Janelle Cahoon, Quiltcentric

Good news for quilters in the Southeast!  The new Southeastern Quilt & Textile Museum held its grand opening Sept. 15th at 306 Bradley Street in Carrollton, Georgia.  As the only quilt museum in the Southeastern U.S., the museum plans to focus not only on quilts from Georgia, but throughout the region.

The grand opening was the kick-off for the museum’s current exhibit of 40 quilts in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the West Georgia Quilt Guild.  This exhibit will continue through the first weekend in November.

November 8th will mark the opening of the museum’s next exhibit, “Not Your Mother’s Quilt,” which will include quilts from Georgia schoolchildren and others.

The museum will continue exhibiting in its temporary location at 306 Bradley Street while renovations continue on the permanent site.  Upon completion, the museum will move adjacent to its current location to its permanent home in the red brick building that was the former Cotton Producers Association/Gold Kist Cotton Warehouse.
