The QSGA exists to promote interest and research into quiltmaking in Australia. Members are committed to the study of quilts, both past and present, this study encompassing also the social and historical context in which the quilts were made.
The Group encourages the perservation of significant historical quilts and, while not itself having the resources to preserve quilts, will aim to facilitate preservation through appropriate organizations and institutions.
Further, the Group is committed to the recognition of contemporary quiltmaking acknowledging its role in Australia's continuing heritage of quilts and quiltmaking. The Group will organize a biannual newsletter and a biennial seminar. Inquiries: QSGA, Margaret Rolfe, 84 Morgan Crescent., Curtin, ACT 2605 AUSTRALIA.
