The National Museum of the American Coverlet
is the first independent, year-round institution
devoted to American woven coverlets.

Coverlet Museum

NMAC gives coverlets the recognition and respect they deserve, while bringing their history to life. 

The Museum opened in Bedford, Pennsylvania’s historic (1859) former Common School building in May of 2006. Since then, it has welcomed visitors from around the world.

NMAC offers changing exhibitions, generally showing 50 or more coverlets at a time, along with special events, classes, and a Shop.

We are generally open daily, seven days a week. You are cordially invited to visit and take an informal guided tour. If you are traveling a distance, we encourage you to call ahead and let us know you’re coming.

New Yahoo Group - NMAC Collectors Corner    
Collectors’ Corner is a discussion group, hosted on Yahoo, for collectors, researchers, and anyone from newbie to expert who is interested in learning more about coverlets.  Group members can post questions and photos, respond to other folks, or just “listen in” to gain from the wealth of knowledge available there. 

An electronic archive of past and present issues of the Museum’s member newsletter Yarns can also be found at the Collectors’ Corner. 

The Group is moderated by NMAC Board members Ron Walter and Richard Jeryan.  It is free, by invitation only, for Museum members.  Non-Museum members (and not-yet Museum members) are welcome on a limited trial basis.
