I wanted to post a completely different post today – about a quilt show with the theme “it’s magic”. But then I stumbled upon this video about SAQA.

I believe that many of you already know about SAQA. For those who don’t: SAQA is an international non-profit organization dedicated to promoting art quilts and the artists who create them. You can find all about this organization at www.saqa.com.
For years now I often come back to their website arguing with myself if I should join. There are all these famous quilt artists – do I really belong there? Am I creative enough with my quilts? (I confess that from time to time I love making a traditional quilt, even a sampler quilt.) But I would love to be in a community with like-minded people, get their input and give mine. And this video finally did it – I will become a member immediately after posting this. The different view points of the artists in this video, the marvellous quilts – I want to be part of this. So how about you? Are you already a member? Are you planning to become one? I am looking forward to meeting you or seeing your quilts at one of their shows.
PS: The “magical quilts” will be posted next week. Check back or subscribe so that you don’t miss them.
