New Mexico Quilter's Association (NMQA)
Since 1974, the New Mexico Quilter's Association in Albuquerque has been a community of quilters passionate about their art, and the friendships built through learning and community service. The guild offers lectures and workshops by well-known quilt instructors. Members generate over 700 quilts for charity each year and they engage in outreach and mentoring to groups such as Manzano High students. The annual Balloon Fiesta quilt raffle is a cherished tradition that supports quild programs. Get to know us at the NMACF and see a display of more than 40 quilts.
