Quilt Alliance brings together the creative, scholarly, and business worlds of quiltmaking to celebrate and preserve our shared quilt heritage and inspire today’s quilters.

GO TELL IT! AT THE QUILT SHOW

Every quilt has a story.

Share yours with Go Tell It!, our short video quilt documentation project.

QUILTERS’ SAVE OUR STORIES

Bring your story to the circle.

Explore our longest-running oral history project and hear from quiltmakers around the world.

EVENTS

We create events where quilters gather.

Join us for Textile Talks, Not Fade Away and Quilters Take a Moment.

Quilt Alliance is a nonprofit 501c3 organization established in 1993 with a mission 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.

Textile Talks is a free weekly virtual lecture series — join us every Wednesday at 2pm ET! Visit our Textile Talks page to see upcoming talks and view the recordings of past talks.
