The Appliqué Society ("TAS")
Started in 1996 by Anita M. Smith. In February 1997, Anita sent letters to over 100 quilt guilds in Washington State and surrounding states. On April 26, 1997, an organizational meeting at The Calico Basket in Edmonds, Washington welcomed 75 appliqué lovers. The steering committee volunteered; the first newsletter and first official meeting were in September 1997. Since that time we have grown to over 850 members.

Anita envisions TAS as the source for the appliqué world - a way to network ideas, teachers, tools, shops, fabrics and appliqué groups. Appliqué is a growing interest in the quilt world and inspires real passion in many who learn it. Because of this passion, The Appliqué Society will become an exciting place to express and appreciate the Art of Appliqué. Memberships will be renewable each year during the month you originally join.

Membership information can be found on their website, http://www.theappliquesociety.org
