Individual Member Benefits


A QTA Individual Member is an individual person or two-person partnership whose business, serving the quilt trade, is one or more of the following:
  • Pattern Designer
  • Book Author
  • Fabric Designer
  • Instructor
  • Manufacturers' Representative
Dependent on the nature of your business or your business is larger than an individual person or two-person partnership, then you may likely qualify as a QTA Allied Member (rather than an Individual Member) or as a QTA Retail Member (if you are a quilt shop).

EDUCATIONAL 
WEBINARS

QTA members can attend educational webinars that address topics that are pertinent to various sectors of QTA membership.  Industry leaders or subject matter experts are speakers, presenters and panelists at these webinars, via video over the internet and audio (via telephone or the internet).

The cost to attend is typically no charge for QTA members and since we know that our members' time is at a premium, the only time spent is that time you are at your computer, attending the session.  No travel is involved in these webinars.
