SAQA board member Judith Trager calling for meet and greet in London

We have received the following message from board member Judith Trager who is eager to meet as many European SAQA members as possible at this meet and greet in the Victoria and Albert Museum. Please let her know directly if you are coming. Uta and Elisabeth

Dear U.K. SAQA Members,

I will be in London for three days in a few weeks and hope to be able to meet up with many of you to talk about SAQA generally and get your feedback and ideas. I've talked with a couple of U.K. members trying to figure out where to meet and times, and have settled on meeting at the Victoria and Albert Museum's Cafe at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, October 1. I know many of you from my teaching time in England, and hope to reconnect with you. And, there are some wonderful things happening with Studio Art Quilt Associates--new Board members, new programs and exhibitions, our twenty-fifth anniversary, and a brand new website to talk about. I hope you can come.

The "meeting" will be very informal--we can grab tables and put them together if we are able, but at least we'll have a little time to talk to one another. And, the V & A has a very nice Cafe--and they even have beer and wine! 

Please let me know if you are coming before September 18. I will be on the road from September 18 and my internet connection will be "iffy" during the journey. I don't want to miss any of you. 

Here are the details again:
