The Gulf States Quilting Association (GSQA) was organized in 1984 to create, stimulate, maintain and demonstrate an interest in all things related to quilts and quilt making through community service endeavors, quilt shows, seminars, workshops, lectures and retreats. GSQA also includes a network of quilt guilds located in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and that portion of Florida known as the Panhandle.

GSQA offers to individuals an Annual Membership Level and a Junior Membership Level (for those 18 and under).  A special Affiliated Guild designation is also offered to quilt guilds and bees within the four-state region.  Additional information about each level is included below.

Annual Membership Level

Becoming a member of GSQA is sure to expand your knowledge of quilting and your circle of quilty friends! Some of the benefits of joining the GSQA guild are:

  • Fun and informative quarterly guild meetings and programs
  • Workshops & classes offered in conjunction with the quarterly meetings or through local guilds
  • Various quarterly activities like Lotto Block and Charity Sew (participate in one or all - you decide!)
  • Quarterly "Quilt Talk" Newsletter
  • Membership Roster
  • Membership card that entitles you to a discount with many of our affiliates and retail stores
  • Discounted fees for the Biennial Quilt Show (held in even years)
  • Discounted fees for Quilt Seminar Workshops (held in odd years)

GSQA Annual Membership is open to individuals ages 18 to 100+ years. 

Junior Membership Level

GSQA Junior Membership is open to individuals ages 10 to 18 years.   Junior Members enjoy all of the same privileges as Annual Members but are not allowed to vote on GSQA business matters.

Members at the Junior level are encouraged to attend Quarterly General Membership meetings and register for workshops and classes sponsored by GSQA (at the regular Annual Member Rate).  Junior members must be accompanied by an adult GSQA member at these GSQA sponsored events and activities.
