Call for Entries: “SAQA Texas @ Houston 2010”

All Texas members of SAQA are invited to exhibit one or more mini-quilts in an exhibit to hang behind the SAQA Booth at IQF-Houston. The booth is right outside the SAQA “Creative Force 2010” and “Sightlines” exhibits, which will draw a lot of visitors.

This is a showcase for Texas SAQA members. There is no specific theme. It is your choice. This is your chance to get your work seen by up to 50,000 visitors to the Houston show.

After Quilt Festival, the exhibit will circulate around TX to the SAQA Circle meetings, and other Fiber Artists groups.

If you are able to send more than one, the merrier. Should we not be able to hang all at one time, they will be rotated in and out through the days of Quilt Festival.

Entry Fee: $5 to cover return shipping

Size: 9 x 12 – Portrait
A hanging sleeve is not required, but if you already have one on your work, that is okay.

Important Dates:
September 15 Email your intent
October 15 Deadline for receipt of quilts
November 3 Preview night for IQF
November 4-7 Houston Show

NOTIFY: To get an idea of how many quilts to expect, please email your intent to Mary Ann Littlejohn by September 15.

Guidelines are available on the SAQA Wiki.
