The San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles has been giving up the textile love for 35 years, and to celebrate it's showcasing some amazing historic quilts dating back to the 1880s, including one made by Francis Scott Key's wife. You'll also find contemporary fiber art and ethnic costumes, including a never-before-exhibited, oversized ritual dance costume from the Yoruba people of West Africa. The exhibit runs through February 3. [San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles]
