The trunk has will arrived in Colorado:
The SAQA Trunk is a portable collection of small quilts. It is a perfect way for those of us interested in art quilting to get our “hands on” a wide variety of work and serves as a introduction to the art quilt.
I want to thank Kathleen Genz, who will be sharing the trunk with the Palmer Divide Quiltmakers , Dona May Norris who will be sharing the trunk with Longmont Quilt Guild and Jean Herman who agreed to have the trunk available at the Front Range Contemporary Quilters meeting.
A great opportunity: SAQA International Artists Panel Mentorship Webinar
Tuesday, December 9 at 1 pm ET
The International Artists Panel will include three international SAQA members sharing their art quilts and discussing how their creative lives are influenced by the places they live. Alicia Merrett was born and raised in Argentina and lives in the United Kingdom. Barbara Lange and Uta Lenk live in Germany. This webinar is an outstanding opportunity to learn about some of SAQA’s international members and be inspired by these talented art quilters.
Please click the following link to register. Registration is limited, but all SAQA members will have access to the full audio and video recording of the webinar on the SAQA website within a few days after the event.
Longmont Quilt Guild January 13, 7:00 p.m., 803 Third Avenue in Longmont.
Arrive early to view the SAQA Trunk Show and stay to hear a program by internationally-known quilt artist Judith Trager whose work is displayed in many public, museum, corporate and private collections. A lifelong westerner of pioneer heritage, Judith’s work often reflects the physical and cultural landscape of the American West. Rich in color, pattern and harmony, Judith’s innovative art quilts are often pieced, painted, sewn, embellished, and manipulated. Come hear Judith’s vision of the strong tie between traditional quilts and art quilts. Time will be allocated for Judith to answer audience questions.
The Longmont Quilt Guild meets at the First Evangelical Lutheran Church, the corner of Third Avenue and Terry Street in Longmont, CO. Meetings are free to LQG members; there is a $5 guest fee for non-members. For more information, visit www.longmontquiltguild.org.
