Among the participants in AzQS, you may find members of formal quilt related groups such as the Arizona Quilt Documentation Project, the Arizona Quilters Hall of Fame and/or the state’s two quilt guilds and their chapters. Many participants are also members of the American Quilt Study Group, a national organization dedicated to quilt study and research. See the Organizations page for links.
Arizona Quilt Study (AzQS) brings together people who share a love of antique quilts and their accompanying history. The group started in 2005 with 10 participants and has grown to include more than 80 individuals from all corners of the state. The group is not a formalized entity and thus, there are no annual dues. Anyone who wishes to study quilt history is welcome to attend events.

AzQS hosts two annual meetings, one in the spring and one in the fall, where participants come from across the state, and sometimes from neighboring states, to spend the day in quilt study. Activities may include presentations by both nationally known and Arizona speakers, show and tell of quilts and a Silent Auction with proceeds to support AzQS activities. There may also be a personal sale table where items are sold between individuals. Go to our Regional Study Days page to learn about these events.
