Trunk Show FAQsTrunk Show Schedule


Over 460 pieces of artwork in total!

SAQA’s traveling trunk shows are designed to showcase SAQA’s diversity of talent and its mission to “promote the art quilt through education, exhibitions, professional development, documentation, and publications.” 

The 2017 Trunk Show will premiere at the SAQA Conference, April 27 - 30, 2017 in Lincoln, Nebraska. Following the conference, eight different trunks will travel to venues both in and out of the United States for up to three years.  

We are now accepting reservations for the 2017 Trunk Show (available in May). Please contact William Reker at for details.  

The trunk show is a wonderful way to view and engage with quilts made using a wide variety of styles, techniques, and fibers. Some venues might want to organize special meetings around the trunk show and invite local quilt groups to view the works. Other venues might want to use the trunk show as the basis for a critique session, while still more might consider exhibiting the trunk show in their local libraries or art centers.

Each quilt is 10 x 7 inches, mounted on a black 12 x 9 inch backing board, and sealed inside a clear envelope. The artist's location, artwork title, statement and information about techniques and materials are on the back.
