Small story quilts made by Latina women while they learned to speak and write English will be featured at the Virginia Quilt Museum. Working with fabric and thread, immigrants in Northern California told stories of family, dreams and home. Talking and writing about the meaning of the quilts, they learned to speak English and to use computers. The resulting folk art in fabric is thought provoking and beautiful.

Parking in the municipal lot behind the museum is free. The gift shop contains reasonably priced gifts and mementos of a visit.
