Our specific purpose was—and always will be—to promote, teach, and encourage our love of all types of appliqué; and we have done this by hosting the top appliqué teachers in the country.

We have hosted nationally acclaimed and world renown appliqué and quilting instructors including Elly Sienkiewicz, Mary Sorensen, Jo Coon, Cindy Blackberg, Kim Diehl, Anita Shackelford, Karen Phillips Shwallon, Gwen Marston, Sharon Stroud, Becky Goldsmith, Karen Kay Buckley, Lisa Bongean, Jo Morton, Frieda Anderson, Mark Sherman, Linda Cantrell, Juanita Yeager, Esterita Austin, Beth Ferrier, David Taylor, Irene Blanck, Sue Garman, Kathy McNeil and Nancy Kerns—and more yet to come.

Another objective that we have so successfully accomplished was our goal to learn and master appliqué and quilting techniques, to encourage and achieve excellence in our needlework, and to make masterpiece quilts and compete at the national/international level.
