I am re-sending this as a reminder of the upcoming trip on Saturday hope to see you all there. We will try to take a few pictures to post to the blog. If you haven't sent me any information about your self to post on our blog http://www.saqailwi.blogspot.com, I hope you will sooon.
Laura, Trish and I hope you are having a very productive summer. I hope you are finding time to visit the SAQA site and keeping up to date on all the news that is provided there.
The time is fast approaching for our third group event an outing on July 31st to the Milwaukee Art Museum to view the American Quilts: Selections from the Winterthur Collection.
Our plan is to meet Saturday July 31 at the Milwaukee Art Museum to see the American Quilts Exhibit. We will meet at the main entrance at 10 a.m., view the exhibit and gather for lunch at the Café Calatrava in the museum and again have an impropto SAQA meeting. As I remember there is a wonderful gallery region in Milwaukee and perhaps we can wander over there after the exhibit. Or if any of you WI people have a better idea please share it with us by email before the trip. We look forward to experiencing these great art outing with who ever shows up. Please mark your calendars and try to join us.
SOFA will once again be in Chicago this fall November 5-7, 2010 Festival Hall, Navy Pier. SAQA would like to have a table and needs volunteers to man the table. If you are interested please contact Trish Williams and she will set up a schedule of times for those that respond. You get in free to the show and it is well worth the trip into Chicago.
DON’T FORGET - We are organizing a show called, Material Ways, an exhibit of art work by you, our Illinois and Wisconsin regional members opening at the Fine Line in St. Charles, IL in January. The entry form and images are due September 1, 2010. You can find the entry form and guidelines in our SAQA IL/WI Yahoo files. Or it is attached with this email. Or email Laura at firstname.lastname@example.org for the information.
Thank you from your hard working, or hardly working regional reps.
Frieda, Trish and Laura
