Past Events

Friends of International Quilt Museum frequently holds fundraising and educational events to support the museum's mission. Here is a look back at some of our recent past events.

The Sixth Annual Friends of the IQM Art Market in November 2019 was a big hit! We raised $13,185 in profits to benefit the International Quilt Museum.

Thank you to all of the vendors and shoppers who made this event possible. We couldn't have done it without you!
