Quilters Hall of Fame

Founded in 1979 by Hazel Carter, The Quilters Hall of Fame (QHF) is a non-profit
organization dedicated to honoring those who have made outstanding contributions to the world of quilting.

Quilt History

The Quilt History list was created to provide a forum for people around the world who are interested in antique quilts and related textiles to discuss the historical aspects of quilting. We discuss all aspects of antique quilts - fabrics, design, color, etc. - as well as the stories behind them.  We also share our experiences with the more practical aspect of antique quilts - finding, washing, researching, restoring and even reproducing.

National Quilter's Association

The National Quilting Association, Inc., a nonprofit organization run by quilters for quilters, was founded in 1970 by seven women in the Washington, D.C., area. The organization was established to create, stimulate, maintain, and record an interest in all matters pertaining to the making, collecting, and preserving of quilts, and to establish and promote educational and philanthropic endeavors through quilts. Membership in the organization is open to all interested individuals. The NQA was chartered in 1972. Local NQA Chapters were also begun during these early years.

Quilt In A Day

Quilt In A Day

Twenty five years ago Eleanor Burns introduced her first Quilt in a Day book, cultivating a quiltmaking revolution. Her concise, step-by-step directions were easy to grasp, allowing the possibility for anyone to be successful at making a quilt. Her Quilt in a Day TV series began airing on PBS in 1990 and is still broadcasting nationwide and abroad, teaching patchwork in countries like Japan. Now you can enjoy special technique video clips right on our web site. Learn Eleanor's fast, easy methods for her most popular techniques. Watch for more

American Legacy  Quilt Block Indexes

"Rose Lea Alboum's compilation of a large array of illustrated quilt pattern indexes is a major research effort. Entire inventories of late nineteenth century and twentieth century quilt pattern publishing sources, some frequently numbering hundreds of quilt designs each, are recorded in Rose Lea's indexes. Although each index documents a single published source, the aggregate size of the total project is massive and comprehensive. Rose Lea's indexes constitute a notable contribution to quilt history." ~ Cuesta Benberry

I didn't start out to make handmade quilts and quilt tops for sale. The idea of selling them came about because I have too many quilts and quilt tops as a result of a real love for the process of making patchwork! Designing and then piecing the quilt tops are the parts of making a quilt that I enjoy the most. I consider my quilts and quilt tops to be handmade even though I piece them on my trusty Singer 319W. This is the only sewing machine I've ever owned and we've grown comfortably old together :)  All of my quilts and quilt tops are made by me personally in my home sewing room, which is my favorite place in the world.

The Crazy Quilt Society is a non-profit group, a program of the Quilt Heritage Foundation based in Omaha, NE. We invite you to join the Society for 2007. Starting with 2007 membership in the Society will be free, but all newsletters will come by email and will be more informal than past years. Listen to our teleseminars with conference faculty online!
