Want to get involved in our next regional show?

Want to connect with 180+ art quilters in three states?

Interested in writing a blog, using facebook and other social media to connect people? 

If you answered yes to any of these questions. Considered joining our regional SAQA representative team. There is so much to gain by being a regional representative. It will help you make connections and grow in the wider community of art quilters.

We are a forward thinking region and need to add a representative to our team in the next few months. Margaret’s term is over in November and Bev’s term will end in July 2017.  We’d like to have someone join us now to help with new shows that we are planning.   Being a regional rep is a great way to really get to know the region’s members!
