Spreading the word

Hi everyone. Sorry about the postponed meeting. Three weeks of a very nasty flu is a real drag. I still don't have much energy. However, last week I did get to meet a group of fiber artists at Kathleen's house on Maui and I'm hoping they will all join us. Tomoprrow I go to Oahu to address the quilt guild there. Hopefully we'll generate some interest there as well.
 Most important, our meeting is coming up this Saturday, the 28th, here at my studio. Write or call me if you need directions, It's at noon. Bring food if you like. I'll have some snacks available too. I'll have some information on the new SAQA website and member categories, my updated presentation on art principles for quilters, and some clay to play with as we discuss what we can use for embellishments.  We'll show and tell, and share food and drink. We'll talk about getting everyone involved with activities, workshops, shows, and hopefully, this blog.

Welcome to transplanted SAQA member Kristina Adams, recently of northern California, now of Honokaa /Hawaii. Kristina is a quilt and mixed media artist and looks forward to joining our adventures.
Be sure to sign up for our photoshop workshop in February, and invite your mainland friends as well so we can pay our expenses!

ALOHA! Welcome to our new blog! Although we are still "under construction" we are launched!

Many thanks to Stephanie Serrano for setting this up. We now have a real way to communicate with each other (maybe here in Hawaii we should say "talk story?"), get updated on all things SAQA and fiber art related, and to get to know each other and find out what everyone is doing.

So, first of all, go to the sidebar and become a "follower" of this blog. That will get you notified when new information is posted.

Secondly, check that the member's information and photos of you are what you want to be here. Send corrections or additions to Stephanie or me.

Third, let us know when something is happening! We want to be inclusive and informative here!

Fourth, check the tabs at the top. We'll be posting information about upcoming meetings, our upcoming exhibit, and all of the details about our Photoshop retreat for next February.

Fifth, give us your feedback! This blog is only as good as we all make it!

Welcome to the Hawaii regional SAQA blog.

We are very excited to debut and hope that it will serve as a vehicle for all Hawaii members to get know each other, and cheer each other on in our artistic journeys. We are interested in hearing about your art, your triumphs and tribulations in learning and making art, and your goals and interests.
