Welcome to our "Christmas in July" online auction! Bidding will begin at 8 am EDT on Friday, July 1 and will conclude at 10 pm EDT on Sunday, July 31. Your auction for holiday gifts, decorations and projects. Start your holiday shopping early!

The Virginia Quilt Museum is the official quilt museum of the Commonwealth of Virginia and its mission is to celebrate and nurture Virginia's quilting heritage.
