SAQA will be live and thrive in Hawaii,

Tomorrow I fly to Oahu, and will give a lecture to the quilt guild in Honolulu about Art Principles for Quilters. Of course, I'm also going to tell them all about SAQA, and encourage them to join us. And also, m,aybe get some of them to sign up for the photoshop retreat in February.
Meanwhile I'm still having fun with the improvisational piecing, even made a BED quilt with it (gasp). I had some enthusiastic students in Kona when I taught a class on that at the end of August

We have houseguests coming October 1, and I leave the 16th for California. I'll get to go to PIQF, where My Girl and 'Shrooms will be hanging, then spend time with the kids until IQA Houston, where I'll get to take part in some SAQA activities, and see my quilts hanging in several exhibits ( SAQA's Text Messaging, West Coast Wonders ( two of my stained glass pieces, Tributary and my wild pelicans), the Israeli Quilters' Association's exhibit, The Many Faces of Jerusalem, and SAQA's auction (Opake). If you're going to be at either show, let me know and we'll meet up!
