Austin Circle Launched

Last Saturday, Austin area SAQA members gathered at Mandi Ballard's home to launch Austin's first SAQA circle. We had a show-n-tell, networked, planned the dates of future meetings, and had a round-table discussion about how we get ideas from our heads out into the world. Ruthie Powers shared her experience of the SDA Conference with us. In addition, we had a lovely potluck lunch and got to see Mandi's spectacular studio!

Future meetings will be on the 1st Saturday of the month, unless it is a holiday weekend. Then, it will be pushed to the 2nd Saturday.

Dates and hosts (so far) are as follows:
September 12, 2009 hosted by Diane Sandlin
November 7, 2009
January 9, 2010 hosted by Lynne Allen
March 6, 2010 hosted by by Dee Merrell
May 1, 2010
July 10, 2010

I thought we had a couple of presenters identified at the meeting, but didn't get names onto the regional page. If you volunteered or would like to volunteer to do a small presentation, please contact Laurie Brainerd at

If you can host a meeting in Nov, May, or July, please contact Laurie Brainerd at
