It was wonderful to see you all last month in Albuquerque. We had 25 in attendance at that meeting. The show and tell was inspiring as well as all the ideas in the works for Cultural Red. It is going to be a fabulous show! Please see the info about Cultural Red at the Capitol Rotunda Gallery, April –August 2015 below and look for the entry form which will be attached to another email/newsletter sometime later this month.
Our next potluck meeting will be at 11:00 am on September 13th tentatively at the Folk Art Museum in Santa Fe. I will confirm the location and let you know for sure with the next newsletter.
We are making plans for another fun workshop/weekend of fun with the opening of Cultural Red. Stay tuned for the details! Also, start thinking about another opportunity still in the making and way off in the future “Healing Quilts”. This is just a tease! More to about this to come.
We talked about local photographers for quilts. I used to have some names and I think I sent them out in a newsletter about a year ago, but I can’t find them. If you know of any locally would you respond to this email with their name and contact information. I will then forward them to the group with the next email. Thank you.
Until then…. Happy art quilting!
