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.
