Since its inception, Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA) has witnessed and supported the development of the art quilt world and the acceptance of the art quilt as mainstream art. With 16.4 million active quilters in the US (and an estimated 30 million quilters worldwide), this movement is continuing to gain momentum!

In recent years, the art quilt has become a mainstream art form across galleries and museums in the US, yet many organizations are still working to understand the medium and how to serve its population. Quilters tend to be regular museum-supporters, art event attendees, collectors, and workshop or educational program participants. Altogether, they spend $2.27 billion a year on their passion.

As a worldwide resource for information on the art quilt and the artists who create them, SAQA helps artists and arts organizations participate in this growth. Our new Affiliate Membership program was created to provide support to organizations in learning about the art quilt, how it plays a role in contemporary exhibitions and art organizations, and how members can grow their organization by integrating the art quilt into their own programming.
