The NEW MEXICO Region of SAQA (Studio Art Quilt Associates) is here to support and promote professional fiber artists and teachers as well as quilters working to develop their fine art skills. New NM SAQA members, please contact Gale Oppenheim-Pietrzak
NM Regional Representative
Studio Art Quilt Associates
firstname.lastname@example.org to receive the newsletter.
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.
