About Our Work

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.


The Quilt Alliance has documented the stories of more than 2,000 quiltmakers over the past three decades with the support of our donors.

Every dollar helps us capture another meaningful quilt and another member of our community.


Our members make our work possible. Bring your story to the circle by joining our alliance of quiltmakers and quilt lovers.

Your support helps sustain our projects and help us preserve the stories of quilts and quiltmakers.
