RICHLAND, WA- The White Bluffs Quilt Museum displayed antique clothing and linen from decades ago to celebrate needlework.

The museum is normally closed on Sundays but they opened their doors to everyone to celebrate.  October is their special antique clothing and linen display and some of the items dated back to the 1800's.

This collection in Richland started small in 2006 and blossomed into something bigger.

“We started with just a handful of folks around the dining room table and now we have well over 200 members,” said found Virginia Treadway.

One of those members has lots of family history inside this museum.  Display coordinator Carol Capelle said a gown worn by her grandmother when she was a baby was passed to her, passed down to her daughter, and now to her granddaughter.  Capelle is happy to share that piece of history with everyone.

“It's good for them to see what was done in the past. Some of the work is just phenomenal,” said Capelle.

The museum is displaying items from over a century ago and some clothing still looks the way it once did because members try to keep in good shape.

“It's nice to be able to try to revive these things,” said Capelle.

She said she enjoys do needlework.

“I really enjoy it. I want other people to enjoy learning how to do these things too and pass them on to the other generations,” said Capelle.

Treadway said it is almost like a lost art and it is unique to today.

“Frankly, you just don't get much of a warm fuzzy from looking at a computer screen,” said Treadway.

Next month the museum is having a Native American display that has brought in people from nearly 300 miles away.
