|The Applique Society's mission is To Promote, to Teach, and to Encourage the Love of All Types of Applique in Quilting.

The Applique Society (TAS) and its members want to ensure that the art of applique will continue through the generations.
We have been experiencing major website malfunctions due to the website company security compliance update. We tried to post this message several days ago but the programs froze and we were not able to access the formats. We are very sorry for the inconvenience this has caused many of you. We want to thank you for your patience and understanding. We heard from many of you but were not able to respond until the web company solved the issues. Hopefully all is well now and you should be able to access all of our pages. If you are still having difficulty please let us know.
If you are having difficulty accessing our website you may have to use Google Chrome or Foxfire instead of Internet Explorer. This is a compatibility issue internet wide. Members have had success using these alternate browsers.
If you have changed your e-mail address within the past several months please send in your change so that we may update your profile. Whenever requesting help please be sure to send your membership number and the full name used for your membership form submission.
Please refer to our "News" tree-menu for academies, quilt shows and general news items. We have also begun to add quilt shows to the "Events" tree-menu. If your guild is having a quilt show please feel free to go to the "Events" tree-menu and fill out a request form and submit it for our calendar. You must include a start and end time for each day for the calendar. Due to a large volume of submissions, we can only post academies, retreats, and quilt shows at this time. We are not able to post individualized classes. Did you know we now have a face book page? It is growing every day!
TAS would welcome any pictures of your applique quilts or projects that have applique included to display on our website. We will try to exhibit as many as possible. The volume of submissions will determine how long we will share your amazing quilts. Send a picture(s) with a small caption of information such as, pattern/designer, your name and if there is something special you would like us to know. You do not have to be a member of TAS to submit your creations but please consider joining our family or beginning a chapter in your area. For more information on beginning a chapter or questions contact email@example.com. It really is very easy to begin a chapter and so much fun! Send in your pictures in care of the firstname.lastname@example.org We are very excited to hear from you.
We have also updated our Chapter Listings, TDA's, and Shops. We hope you approve of the modifications as we go forth in this new year. We would welcome any ideas you would like to see. Please submit your ideas to email@example.com.

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.
