Membership Application

The International Quilt Association is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of the art of quilting as an art form, and the advancement of the state of the art throughout the world. The four founders--Jewel Patterson (1910-2002), Karey Patterson Bresenhan, Helen O'Bryant (1914-2005), and Nancy O'Bryant Puentes--established this organization in 1979 to provide dedicated quilt lovers the opportunity to work productively toward increasing the prestige, artistry, creativity, professionalism, and recognition of quilts.
