Meux Home

One of the intricate quilts on display at the Mennonite Quilt Museum in downtown Reedley shows the historic Meux Home of Fresno. 

 

The works of the San Joaquin Quilters Guild is now on display at the Mennonite Quilt Center's museum. The museum is located upstairs above the Mennonite Quilt Store, Marci VanderGriend, store manager for the Mennonite Quilt Store, a non profit quilt store located in downtown Reedley and owned by the Mennonite Central Committee, said this exhibit is different from other exhibits they have showcased.

"It's very interesting all the talent that's in the valley," she said. "It's amazing how different guilds have different focuses, this one is more modern and our quilts and other guilds will be more traditional."

The collection of quilts includes a piece dedicated to the historic "Meux Home" in Fresno.
