Our Community

When you join SAQA, you become a member of a worldwide community of artists, curators, collectors, and art professionals who appreciate and love art quilts.

We foster community through online and local connections. Our members host local meetups, workshops, exhibitions, and retreats with others in their regions

Our Live Chats and Special Interest Groups allow members to meet virtually using video-conferencing to discuss and learn about specific art quilt topics. We also have a thriving members-only Facebook group where we talk about art, our creative journeys, and what inspires us.

Come share your artwork, ask your questions, and make new friends around the world!
