Who We Are: A group of fiber artists

The Contemporary QuiltArt Association, a 50l (c)(3) non-profit arts organization run entirely by volunteers, is a Washington state group formed in the fall of 1986. We are a diverse group of artists, teachers, writers, and collectors living throughout Washington, and we view quilts as an exciting medium of expression and a viable contemporary art form. We are proud of our years of CQA exhibits around the state, the nation, and the hemisphere.

Read more about our members' work. See examples in the Exhibition and Members galleries.

Membership is open to all residents of Washington State. To join CQA, complete and submit the Membership Application form. You can use PayPal buttons to pay annual dues.
