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, emerging medium of expression and a viable contemporary art form.

Interested in joining CQA? You can download a Membership application form, or contact our Membership Chairperson. We'd love to welcome you to our group.
