Deadline approaching!

Don't forget about the Call for Entry for All Texas SAQA Members!  

The postmark date for your entry is September 15, 2013, so there is still time to enter.  This is a great opportunity to have your 12" x 12" art quilt travel travel in the Texas SAQA exhibit and be shown at various venues including the Capital of Texas Quiltfest in Austin.

See the original call for entry information here.

Volunteers needed for SAQA Booth at Original Sewing and Quilt Expo in Fort Worth

SAQA Texas!  We need your help!

The quilts from SAQA's current "Deux" exhibit will be displayed at the Original Sewing and Quilt Expo in Fort Worth.  SAQA will have a booth, and would like to staff it with Texas SAQA members.

The Expo is on October 17, 18 and 19 in at the Will Rogers Memorial Center in Fort Worth. We'll work in three hour shifts selling books and answering questions about Art Quilts.  It is sure to be a good time!

If you work a shift, you'll get in free for that day.  However, you will have to pay parking, which the Expo site states will be between $8 to $10 per day.  I will be there pretty much the whole time, and anyone who wishes to be there the entire day as well can park at my house in Fort Worth and ride with me.

If you can help, contact Heather Pregger at heatherpregger@sbcglobal.net

Deux Art Quilt Exhibit Get-Together - Friday October 18 a7 10:15

The SAQA special exhibit "Deux: Two Ideas, Two Inspirations, Two Complementary Quilts" will be shown right here in our area!

Deborah Boschert is organizing an outing to view the exhibit and share some time together. The exhibit is part of the Sewing and Quilt Expo at the Will Rogers Memorial Center in Fort Worth on October 17, 18 and 19.

The get-together will be Friday, October 18. Please meet in the Deux exhibit at 10:15 am. This will give us time to park, enter the show and find our way to the exhibit. We'll see the exhibit all together and have some time to talk about the art quilts included. After, we can see more of the expo together or independently, then let's meet up for lunch in the food court area of the expo. We should be able to grab a table to share.

Please feel free to bring your friends! This get-together is not exclusively for SAQA members.

You can buy tickets online ahead of time for $8 plus $3 processing fee. Or $10 at the door. There is also an option for the driver to get in free if she carpools with two other people who pay $10 at the door. http://www.sewingexpo.com/FortWorthTX/TicketsPricing.aspx

Please RSVP to Deborah Boschert, just so we know who to look for! Feel free to let Deborah know if you have any questions or suggestions. Her email is Deborah@DeborahsStudio.com
