Studio Art Quilt Associates, Inc. (SAQA) is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote the art quilt through education, exhibitions, professional development, documentation, and publications. SAQA defines an art quilt as “a creative visual work that is layered and stitched or that references this form of stitched layered structure.”

Founded in 1989 by an initial group of 50 artists, SAQA is now an international organization with over 3,600 members: artists, teachers, collectors, gallery owners, museum curators and corporate sponsors. SAQA members challenge the boundaries of art and change perceptions about contemporary fiber art.  A dedicated core of volunteers and staff keep the organization vibrant, dynamic, and progressive.
