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.

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)


Your guild membership will run for one year and renews every year on the date you join.  Types of membership are:

  • New or Renewing Members - $20/year

Members may pay for multiple years if so desired

  • Junior Members - $5/year

Available to individuals 10 to 18 years old.  A junior member will be eligible to attend quarterly general meetings if accompanied by an adult GSQA member but not allowed to vote on GSQA matters. They will also be able to attend workshops and classes sponsored by GSQA but will be required to pay the normal class fee and must be accompanied by an adult GSQA member.
