The tour of quilts on display on the 7th and 8th floor, only available to view by special aarrangement, was fabulous. The tram tour through the spring gardens was just beautiful. And some members stayed to go through the self-paced tour of the 4th and 5th floors — the galleries that are the standard public tour.
