SAQA-CT would like to invite you to an Open Regional Meeting. 

We will gather at the Windsor Art Center (WAC) in Windsor, CT on Saturday February 12, 2011 at 10 AM.   SAQA Members from all over New England, New York and New Jersey as well as members of the public are welcome to attend.

This meeting will coincide with the “Identity in Fiber” Exhibition, which runs from January 22 – March 5, 2011 at WAC. 

We will be meeting during the Windsor Art Center’s normal business hours, so members of the public will be walking though and are welcome to participate.  People may ask questions or just listen & see what we’re about. 

RAOlson_TomorrowMayBeTooLateFiber Artists: Please feel free to bring something to work on while you sit.  Knitting, hand quilting, embroidery… anything that can be done neatly & quietly and does not require special equipment or set up.

The meeting will include our usual “Show & Tell”, a gallery talk with “Identity in Fiber” participating artists, and a boxed lunch. 

The cost of lunch will probably be somewhere around $8 - 10.   Check the blog for updates as details are confirmed.  If you are interested in attending, please RSVP to SAQA-CT Co-Rep Kate Themel
