We welcome you!
We invite you to explore our newly updated website.
We both have quilts in SAQA’s exhibit, A Sense of Scale. It is an exhibit composed of very large pieces shown next to installations of small pieces, all expressing the concept of scale. Jean’s Venice Alley meets the size requirements for the large pieces and Aileyn’s Old Rusty Scythe qualifies for the small installation. The exhibit opened at the International Quilt Festival in Houston, November, 2012 and will travel for two years.
Our good friend and quilting cohort, Franki Kohler, has a blog you may want to visit. FrankiKohler.com
Several hundred eight inch quilts were made by SAQA members for the This Is A Quilt trunk show. They were divided into seven groups which are available to show for the next year at quilt gatherings throughout the world. If anyone is interested in having a group sent to your guild or quilt group, contact us or SAQA at SAQA.com. Fifty of the eight-inch quilts have been selected to be in a permanent collection at the Michigan State University Museum. We were surprised and pleased to learn that both of our quilts were among those to be in that collection.
We will each have pieces in the exhibit Put Your Best Foot Forward, Foot-Square Works from the Northern CA-Northern NV Region of SAQA at Creative Framing & Gallery in Oakland, Ca.
If you are interested is seeing more fiber art, go to SAQA.com. SAQA (Studio Art Quilt Associates) is an international organization that exists to promote the art quilt. It is also an organization that, because of it’s regional meetings, is personal enough to help promote the individual. We love it.
