The kickoff meeting for the North Texas SAQA Circle was a wonderful success! 16 members met in the home of Heather Pregger. The group decided:
We will meet quarterly, on the third Saturday of the month in January, April, August and November, from 1 to 4. Members will have the option of meeting for lunch near the meeting place beforehand.
We will meet at Petit Atelier in the Deep Ellum neighborhood of Dallas. They have very kindly, thanks to Carol Trice, offered us their classroom.
We will have a critique session, tentatively scheduled for August. We will hire a local artist/professor/gallery owner from outside of the fiber art genre to look at our work.
We will find a venue to host a show of members’ work in early 2015.
Our next meeting will be January 18 at Petit Atelier, pending the availability of the meeting room. The program will be “The Psychology of Creation.” Members will share insights about their inspirations and the starting of new projects.
