Volunteers needed for Stewarding the SAQA stand at FOQ Birmingham

Sandy Snowden from Great Britain is arranging the rota for the SAQA exhibition in August.

We have been able to put one person on the rota for nearly every stewarding session. But we would like to have 2 people instead of just one to make the stewarding easier.

If you are coming to the Festival of Quilts, please would you consider helping? If you are already doing one session, perhaps you would also consider helping for another session?

If you are not confident about speaking English, we would still like your help because there are  many visitors who don't speak English. You can help them connect with the work and with SAQA. 

If you can volunteer, please email Sandy Snowden . Tell her the day you can help and she will tell you what times we still need to fill.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Pizza Parlor Meeting in Berlin

The first-ever SAQA Europe/Middle East Pizza Parlor Meeting took place in Berlin, Germany, yesterday evening, with 7 members (and three prospective members) from 3 different countries in attendance. We enjoyed a sunny and pleasant evening in a pizza place on the corner of Fontanepromenade/Bl├╝cherstr. in Berlin-Kreuzberg, chatted about quilting, SAQA, Berlin, and many other things, and had a wonderful time together.

Hope to see you at the next one - or perhaps you want to take the initiative and organize one yourself!
