The Missouri Quilt Museum has spent the last 12 months working on phase two of remodeling the 30,000 square foot Hamilton Schoolhouse and we are excited to announce it's now open!  Taking on the remodel of a hundred year old building has been quite an undertaking and we are excited to share all our experiences with you.

With nearly 30,000 square feet of indoor space currently finished, and located on an entire city block, our goal is to create the largest, most interactive, Quilt Museum in the United States.  As the official state museum, Missouri Quilt Museum will host quilting exhibits from local artists as well as top designers from around the world, including a featured gallery of rotating quilts from The National Quilt Museum!  WE ARE MORE THEN JUST A QUILT MUSEUM.  We have exhibits of antique sewing machines, vintage buttons, antique toy sewing machines, thimbles, and lots of other sewing memorabilia!  A very special exhibit dedicated to Hamilton, the local residents, and the school itself will be a wonderful representation of where we came from and the rich history of Hamilton, Missouri.

The World's Largest Spool of Thread, measuring 22 feet tall and containing more than one million yards of AURIFIL thread, sits on the southwest corner of the property.  Bring your thread and you can add it to the spool!  In the coming months, sewing themed objects will be created for our playground, community quilt gardens, and mini golf course!  There will be activities for all ages.

We are so excited to be a part of remodeling this historic building.  Although we love and support the Missouri Star Quilt Company, we are not affiliated with them, and therefore are in constant need of funds to bring this opportunity to you.  We are grateful for all the community support we've received and look forward to their continued support. We can't do this project alone and are asking for your help to make it happen.  As a 501c3 non profit entity, your donations are tax deductible!  We have many ways to donate. 

1. The easiest way to help us is to buy something from our gift shop.  I'll proceeds help fund the museum.

2.  If you'd like to be a corporate sponsor by sponsoring an exhibit hall or room, please call or email us.  These sponsorships are limited.

3. We are also looking for your treasured items to put in the quilt museum.  If you have any items that you would like to display, donate, or loan, please let us know and we can honor you and help preserve your treasures! 

You can mail any items or donations to:

4011 NW State Hwy P

Hamilton, MO 64644

4. Elevator Fund.  Everyone loves the Missouri Quilt Museum.  Unfortunately, because it's such an old building, there are 3 floors and no elevator.  To help more people see the wonderful exhibits inside, we are raising funds to add an elevator!  We have found a generous donor to match all the funds that go towards putting in an elevator.  Every dollar helps!  Your donations are tax deductible!

Thank you so much    to our sponsors who help make the

Missouri Quilt Museum possible!
