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 now has over 3,000 members: artists, teachers, collectors, gallery owners, museum curators and corporate sponsors. A dedicated core of volunteers and staff keep the organization vibrant, dynamic, and progressive."
SAQA holds an annual Benefit Auction which provides support for exhibitions, publications and educational outreach as well as increased recognition for art quilts and those who make them  This year's auction begins September 15 at 2 PM.
