Unfortunately, I was unable to attend the May meeting at Michelle's.  Fortunately, Debbie McNeil filled me in on a lot of the business I missed.  The difficult part for me is not being able to be awed and inspired by the remarkable show and tell that the group produces.  Next time!!

I heard that perhaps some in the group would like to see a direct link to shows in New Mexico that are requesting entries and the requirements for entry.  I did put a page marker at the top of this blog for that very thing.  At the top, below the title and statement of purpose, you will see a "Home" tab and next to that is the "Local Call for Entries" tab.  If you click on the "Local Call for Entries" tab you will be taken to the SAQA NM shows that I have been provided information for.  So far, that is only the show at the Open Space Visitors Center Gallery.  Any other information I get I will share in an entry and then put it under that page or tab marker.

If any one has questions or comments please feel free to add them!

The next SAQA meeting will be a potluck at 11:00 am on Saturday May 19th in Albuquerque at The Ambassadors for Christ Community Church, 1540 Juan Tabo NE, Suite A. The Church is located on the east side of Juan Tabo between Indian School and Constitution.
Bring your latest projects for show and tell and be ready to tell us about your favorite gadget, tool, element, whatever you just love using in the art quilt process that you think someone else might benefit from. Wasn't it fun sharing your favorite artist using another medium at the last meeting? There is just sooo much to learn!
If you were considering donating a piece to the SAQA Auction you can fill out the needed info on the SAQA site and bring your donation to the meeting. Gale will be here to collect them. Please make sure you have made it the right size (12" by 12") and added a label and some kind of sleeve or device for hanging.
For those interested, the New Mexico Quilters Association is hosting a Spring Fling quilt show and mercado at the Albuquerque Convention Center May 18th and 19th. It would be a perfect opportunity to go just after the SAQA meeting.
