Auction Begins Thursday

If you haven't already, check out the great artwork up for bid:

Your purchase will provide important support for SAQA's exhibitions,
publications, and outreach programs. For instance:

• This year we are traveling 10 exhibits, which will visit 17 venues
and be seen by well over 100,000 visitors.
• We are producing two print catalogs ("Transformations 09:
Reflections" and a joint catalog for "SAQA@20" and "A Sense of
Humor"), as well as a CD catalog for "Points of View." The catalogs
will be sent to participating artists, as well as to our collectors
and museums lists.
• We are publishing 4,000 copies of Portfolio 16 and mailing it to
collectors, galleries, museums, art consultants, and interior
designers, as well as selling it through Amazon and through quilt
• We hosted the "Art & Excellence" conference in conjunction with the
Opening for Quilt National. DVD's of the keynote speakers and panel
presentations (including the 2009 Quilt National Jurors panel) are now
We will publish four information-
packed issues of the SAQA Journal,
which are mailed to members and to our list of BFA/MFA textile programs.

I hope you'll bid early and often -- this is a chance to buy some
great artwork at a great price!
