The Applique Society's mission is To Promote, to Teach, and to Encourage the Love of All Types of Applique in Quilting. We work to educate and promote public interest in the world of applique, as well as encourage and inspire creativity. The Applique Society (TAS) and its members want to ensure that the art of applique will continue through the generations. 


In order to serve our membership more productively the TAS board is in the process of making some changes.  The board consists of a small handful of volunteers who are located throughout the country though several positions are centered in Sequim, WA. TAS needs more volunteers to help with membership, secretary, etc. Please consider asking us about volunteering or go to our website and download a copy of the volunteer form. You can also review the job descriptions and requirements online. The website is still in the process of being reformatted.  One of the things we are trying to do is make the TAS store more user friendly. Please note that we have changed our business hours. They are Monday - Friday 8:00AM - 5:00PM Pacific Time. Any orders submitted after hours or phone calls after hours will be processed or returned on the next business day. Please be aware that we do not have an official office for TAS. All TAS business is conducted in volunteer member homes. This makes TAS unique and enables us to serve you more personally. We appreciate your service and support. TAS would not be the amazing organization it is without member volunteers!

2014 Give Away Quilt


     What a wonderful and unexpected surprise winning this stunning quilt. It is a beautiful example of appliqué at its finest. The talented artists who worked on this quilt used the perfect combination of vibrant fabric and flawless craftsmanship. Thanks for the time and care that went into making this quilt. Having been a quilter for over twenty years, the most pleasure has come from appliquéing. This quilt is a welcome to my collection and will serve as inspiration for future projects. I am privileged to belong to the Adirondack Appliqué Artists in Lowville, New York. They are a talented and fun group of quilters and share the same love for appliqué.
