SAQA North Texas Circle meeting report

We had a great meeting on Saturday! I loved seeing everyone's work, and the critiques were very informative. I'm glad to have this group!
Our next meeting will be:

November 15, 10 am, at Petit Atelier, 2952 Commerce St, Dallas, Texas 75226


We hope to have another critique session -- with an non-fiber artist/teacher doing the critique this time. Presenting another point of view.  I'll keep you posted!

North Texas Circle August 16th! This Saturday!

The summer is rushing by and I just realized our next meeting is this coming Saturday.
August 16th, 10 am, Petit Atelier. Bring your lunch.
Summer is apparently not a good time to find a critic. We had several (or thought we did) and then they backed out. So instead, I thought maybe we could have a mini-critique. Each member bring two pieces, and we will talk about them in some depth. 
We hope to have a critic at the November meeting. Until then, we'll just utilize the experience and knowledge of the group.

The meeting will be:

August 16, 10 am, at Petit Atelier, 2952 Commerce St, Dallas, Texas 75226

Hope to see you there!
