    Latimer quilt and textile center - any good?

    Has anyone been to the Latimer quilt and textile center in Tillamook? Is it worth going to? The website says they have a quilt book library - is it any good?

    Tillamook, Oregon? All we did there was look at the barn quilts, go to the factory and the air museum.

    No rainbows!


    If you can't be nice.....BE QUIET!

      My sister lives in Tillamook and we have gone to the Latimer center several times. Their focus is on all kinds of textiles, not just quilting. They have a room where they have a featured artist each month - last time I went it was modern art quilts, the time before it was knitting, really fine beautiful things. They have a room full of looms (my niece takes lessons there) and some loomed fabric and dyed yarns for sale, and another full of all sorts of older fabrics and books (donated I think), as well as finished pieces by local members for sale. There are a few antique sewing and quilting things displayed in drawers, and quilts on the wall, but not as much of it as I expected (although I am told they have an extensive collection in storage) Yes, they do have a good sized library, I do not know if books can be checked out or just used there, but we were welcome to browse as much as we wanted, and had it to ourselves that day, at least. Their goal seems to be promoting all types of fiber arts in the community. Check it out for yourself if you get a chance.
