Search Tillamook Oregon
The Latimer Center has made huge progress since its opening in 1991. It is now a non-profit institution which has already completed the first two phases of the American Association of Museums' Assessment Program and is well on its way toward museum accreditation. The Center employs one part-time employee; otherwise, it is currently staffed by volunteers whose activities are overseen by a Board of Directors.

Textile collections include quilts from the mid-nineteenth century to the present, quilt blocks, quilt templates and fabric samples. There are also clothing, handwoven coverlets, looms, spinning wheels and other quilting and weaving textile tools and implements.

The library contains books, many rare and out of print, a quilt pattern collection, a collection of newspaper needlework clippings, and a collection of pamphlets and magazines. While quilting, handweaving and spinning are emphasized, there are also numerous works on tailoring, knitting, crocheting, tatting, embroidery of various types, basketry and other more esoteric uses of fiber as an expressive medium.

Open March through October.
