SAQA Annual Meeting
Laura Wasilowski recently attended the annual SAQA conference with the theme of Reinvention in San Francisco, CA. Held in conjunction with the Surface Design Association conference, members spent 2 days listening to presentations on the state of the art quilt and the connection to curators, emerging artists, and fiber related publications. Tours of local artist's home studios (like Judith Content's above) and galleries featuring fiber art were also available. A week of hands on workshops followed the symposium.

SAQA reps from 18 regions attended the event and held a day long meeting to discuss the concerns of the membership. It was a great opportunity to build networks and camaraderie between regions as distant as the UK and California. All SAQA members are invited to the next conference beginning May 21, 2011 in Denver, CO.
