Kentucky Heritage Quilt Society
The Kentucky Heritage Quilt Society is a statewide organization of quilt lovers, quilt makers and quilt collectors who are committed to promoting the understanding, appreciation and knowledge of the art and craft of quilt making. We support the collection and preservation of Kentucky quilts and the records of Kentucky quiltmakers and their work.

We offer several educational workshops and contests to our more than 450 members each year, and schedule quilt registry events throughout the state to preserve quilt history. Our annual meeting and Getaway event features a national or internationally renowned quilting instructor each year and draws about 150 quilters for three (3) days of quilting workshops and activities.  

Kentucky’s very popular Quilter’s Day Out was founded by the Kentucky Heritage Quilt Society and we continue to support those events around the state as well.
