The Alliance for American Quilts is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to document, preserve, and share our American quilt heritage by collecting the rich stories that historic and contemporary quilts, and their makers, tell about our nation’s diverse peoples and their communities.
In support of this mission, the Alliance brings together quilt makers and designers, the quilt industry, quilt scholars and teachers, and quilt collectors to further the following goals:
to promote the understanding of the quilt as an important American grassroots art form
to make information about quilts available to a broad public
to educate Americans about the importance of documenting quilts and quiltmakers so that their stories will not be lost.
You’ll be hearing a lot about this organization over the next several months.
