2017 SAQA Trunk Show

The SAQA 2017 Trunk Show will be debuting at the SAQA Conference in Lincoln, Nebraska in April.   Kathy York has 462 trunk show quilts and will need some help mounting and labeling the quilts.  If you are able to help, please send her a Facebook message. Supplies for mounting the quilts have not arrived yet, so there will be a small delay in scheduling.  Kathy will email you when she has volunteer spots open.

Houston fabric drive and meeting on May 14

Houston SAQA Members:
You won’t want to miss our May meeting! We’ll host a fabric drive for charity and fabric swap, show & tell and a presentation on SAQA Exhibitions.

Date & Time
May 14, 2016
10:30 am

St. Philip Presbyterian, located on San Felipe near Loop 610.
4807 San Felipe St, Houston
Look for the handmade SAQA Meeting signs.

1.     Extended Show & Tell – Please bring your current project or next project. Finished or unfinished is okay. Share what you’re working on with our creative members.

2.     FABRIC DONATION COLLECTION AND FABRIC SWAP. Do you have fabric you no longer want or need? Bring it to the next SAQA meeting. We will be collecting fabric to donate to charity. Please bring your fabric in a box of some kind (plastic bags are too flimsy). We will accept all types of fabric that is usable and unsoiled. All SAQA members and guests will be invited to look through all the fabric and take what you want! A true fabric swap – you might find some treasure. What’s leftover will be donated. We hope you’ll participate.

3.     Suzan Engler will present a recap of the presentation given by the Exhibition Committee at the national convention. This is an excellent opportunity to hear about the growth in SAQA’s impressive exhibition schedule.

Bring your lunch. There is a microwave provided in the room. 

Any questions, please email me directly (do not reply to this email).
See you Saturday, May 14th.
