Quilts Matter: About The Alliance for American Quilts
Quilts tell stories-they illustrate the history of this country. Quilts express love and sorrow-they link generations together. Quilts are community-people gather to make them and experience them. Quilts are art-these beautiful objects raise our spirits. Quilts teach-they are tools for learning about the world-they've even been used to teach math! Twenty million Americans today are involved in quilt making. Quilts matter!
Because Quilts matter, The Alliance for American Quilts, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization since 1993, brings together quilt makers and designers, the quilt industry, quilt scholars and teachers, and quilt collectors in the cause of documenting, preserving, and sharing our great American quilt heritage. We are committed to collecting the rich stories that historic and contemporary quilts tell about the nation's diverse people and communities.
