Pat Kroth and I have returned from a great experience in Santa Fe at the SAQA conference - Expanding Horizons. We had a few Illinois and Wisconsin members attend - Valerie Rodelli, Roz DeBoer, Deborah Fell,Gyned Trefethen, Pat and myself. We also got to spend some time with Sheryl Kinney, former Illinois resident now living in Denver, CO. The various presentations were well done and informative and we had time to go and visit other members, galleries and shops as well. Martha Seilman will be posting a lot of the particulars on the SAQA blast and email.
We came away with some ideas for our region that I will write aboutin the next week or so.
Mark your calendars for next May 1-4 when the 25th Silver Anniversary conference will be held in Washington, D. C. It already looks like it will be a really great time.
Hope everyone is working on their pieces for The Eye and the Needle. We ahve additional venues in the works and are going to try and get a grant for a catalog. Can't wait to see what everyone is doing!
