I am always happy to share information about what our members are up too.
As always SAQA artists are doing great things. Please write me and I will post any information you would like to share with fellow artists!
She will be presenting “Being Inspired by Other Artists” at The Aspen Quilt Guild, Thursday, May 21. The guild meets at noon at Boulder Valley Christian Church, 7100 S. Boulder Road in Boulder.
When I am heading to the SAQA conference in Portland I will be packing my donation quilt. It’s such a fun project, a great way to expose other fiber art lovers to your work and a great way to support SAQA.

Donations MUST be 12” x 12”. All embellishments and/or hanging methods must be within the 12” x 12” size. Only ONE work per artist will be accepted.
All artwork donated must be ready to hang. Quilts should have a sleeve (at least 2 inches) for hanging. Slats are optional, but appreciated by the collector.
Artwork on stretcher bars will be accepted but may not be any larger than 12” x 12” after mounting and should be no deeper than 1 inch (2.5 cm) after mounting. Artwork on stretchers must have hooks and wire attached for hanging. Mounted work will not be considered for display at the International Quilt Festival(s) because of hanging restrictions.
All donations must have a label on the back, with the title (or “untitled”) and artist’s name clearly written.
Don’t forget to visit our showcase at the Denver National Quilt Show next week. Show opens on Thursday April 30th and closes on Saturday May 2nd.
