Regional SAQA yahoo-group discontinued

Unfortunately, Lutgard has let us know that she won't be able to continue as moderator of the regional SAQA yahoo group any longer. Because discussions on the group site haven't been exactly lively lately, we have then decided to discontinue the group and hope that the blog will be able to serve communication needs withing in the region beyond newsletter topics.
We would like to thank Lutgard for her commitment and support of SAQA and wish her all the best for the future.

Five Europe/Middle East members chosen for "text messages"

For SAQA's newest upcoming exhibition, text messages, works by five members from the region Europe/Middle East were chosen to be part in the show. Five out of 34, that is a decent quota!

As the board requested that no full images of the quilts chosen be published before the first opening of the show at the International Quilt Festival in Houston in November, we will show only detail images here until then.
