August Meeting Recap

SAQA Trunk Show

Thank you to member, Lynn Hanna, for bringing us the Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA) trunk show that included 40 unique mini art quilts, and showcased a variety of materials, techniques, and subject matter. Members who attended were delighted with a broad spectrum of creativity. There was so much to explore!
