SAQA present at IQF Long Beach

We just wrapped up four glorious days with our presence at the 4th annual IQF Festival at Long Beach.  SAQA's two show exhibits, "Sightlines" and "Creative Forces" received rave reviews and the companion books to each exhibit we're also well received. 

Several expert SAQA members including Karen Cunagin, Jake Finch and Mary Tabar as well as other faculty members, spoke at the Festival Theatre on various topics including "Color Theory and "How to get your book published". Check out the shot of Jake doing what she does best at the lectern.

A "BIG" Thank You goes out to all the SAQA members that volunteered their time at the booth.  Mary and I so appreciate your williness and dedication to assisting our regional group.  We worked well as a team and it really made a difference especially when there was a sea of people checking out our products at the booth.   Just below are volunteers Linda Laird and Anne Copeland assisting a festival attendee during one of the more relaxed times.  You can also see several of the 2011 Auction Quilts proudly on displayed at the booth.  There was a lot of buzz about these attractive 12" x 12" quilts.  Don't forget to tell friends and family about the on-line auction beginning September 12th.
