Volunteers are needed for the SAQA booth at Festival in Houston. Can you spare an hour or two? Please check your schedule and join us. It is a great time to meet members and network.
We need at least two people in the booth at all time slots. Let's work together to have a great representation of members working the booth at Festival!

If you work a 2-hour shift, you will get in the show free on the day you work.

 So, email Heather at and let us know when you can work!

Cancelled-Houston Circle Mtg. 9/17

Sadly, the Houston Circle meeting tomorrow (9/17) is being cancelled due to lack of response. Only 3 members have emailed that they are coming.

I will take a look at my agenda and send an email covering those topics.

The next meeting will be November 12, when Susan Ennis will be able to do the Sky Dyes demo we've been trying to work in all year.

See you in Houston.
