Annual Spring Appeal

Hi, SAQA IL WI Members, It's time for the annual Spring Appeal. In addition to membership fees, SAQA depends on voluntary donations to provide the varied programs that inspire, motivate, educate and develop quilt artists and to promote the appreciation of art quilts throughout the world. Every gift and every donor counts!
We all benefit from SAQA in different ways including promoting and displaying our work through the Benefit Auction and Exhibitions. A donation to the Spring Appeal would be wonderful so that we can continue to benefit from this great organization.Please lend your support by making a gift today.

   I was able to attend  the SAQA conference, Fiberlandia, in Portland April 30- May 3. There were engaging and inspiring speakers, interesting sessions, a successful auction, new vendor mall and  great camaraderie! It was nice to reconnect with current regional representatives and make new friends. The Rep meeting provided good opportunities for discussion and new ideas for our region.
