The Yakima Valley Museum has a "Cozy" new exhibit

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash-- With temperature dropping, a room full of quilts sounds pretty good and that's exactly what you'll find on display at the Yakima Valley Museum.

As part of their "Bikes, Trikes, and Bedding" exhibit there are twelve quilts on display.  All of the quilts are made in the Yakima Valley, some by quilter's guilds and others by individuals.  The museum's quilts have gained a reputation over the years and are known in the quilting community.

"We have one the best quilt collections around many of our quilts are used in college textbooks as good examples of quilts", says David Lynx of the Yakima Valley Museum.

In addition to the quilts there are also displays of bikes and tricycles.

The Yakima Valley Museum is open Tuesday through Saturday 10am-5pm.  General admission is $5 a person, $3 for students and seniors, and $12 for families.

The quilts will be on display until February. They will be replaced by "Head Over Heels", an exhibit of women's shoes.
