Welcome to Our New Blog

Hello! My name is Sue King and I am your SAQA Ohio Regional Representative. I live in Lancaster in the southeastern region of the state. This brand new blog was created with you in mind. I hope it will be a dynamic place for members to get to know each other and share their ideas and art. Ohio may not be the largest state, but it has wonderful diversity in culture and geography and it is the place we all call home. Our members also have diverse artistic backgrounds and styles. I hope this site will be a place we can celebrate and express our individuality as well as a place to share our artistic voice and spread our love of the quilt as an art form. It would also be a great place to post events in your area of the state so that our members don't miss out on an exciting show, lecture or seminar. I am open to suggestions on how to make this blog and our Ohio organization meet your needs.

When it comes to technology, I'm still in a big learning curve and undoubtedly many of you have valuable knowledge and ideas that would greatly benfit our group, so please don't hesitate to make suggestions or put forward ideas that would make this a better site. One such talented and generous member is Gisela Towner, hailing from North Olmstead. She has graciously volunteered to set up and moderate this blog as well as a new SAQA OHIO Yahoo Group. Thank you so much Gisela. You rock! So now that this blog is up and running, please don't be shy, we need your ideas to move forward. Let's start talking to each other and start setting some organizational goals. I am so excited to see how this blog and the organization develop in the coming year. Again, a big Buckeye Welcome to everyone and don't forget to join the SAQA Ohio Yahoo Group too. Cheers! Sue


  1. Hi Sue!
    I'm fairly new to SAQA and live in Westerville, Ohio. (I'm from Lancaster.) Is there a regional group of SAQA artists who get together on a regular basis to share work/attend workshops, etc? If so, I'd love to be a part. If this exists, fantastic! If not, can we form one? :)
