Congratulations are also in order for Sue Cavanaugh, SAQA member, also hailing from Columbus. She will represent our organization in Quilt National 2010 with her quilt Ori - Kumi #2. What an accomplishment to have your work selected for show in this most prestigious exhibition. Way to go Sue!
Mark your calendar, you won't want to miss The First Annual SAQA Ohio State meeting scheduled for Saturday, November 20, 2010. The event will take place from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM at The Westerville Public Library in Westerville, Ohio. You will have the opportunity to meet other individuals interested in the world of art quilts.
The town is quaint and charming, with lots of interesting little shops, and beautiful Inniswood Metro Park is nearby. If you are coming in from out of town, you will be happy to learn that it is only a short drive to Easton Towne Center, a leading shopping experience in the Columbus metro area. Maybe you would like to spend the night and do some shopping. I am able to accommodate several people in my home if anyone needs a place to stay, or I will be happy to provide a list of possible accommodations.
Dee Dadik, SAQA Ohio Member, and Certified Appraiser of Quilted Textiles, along with her friend Molly Butler, will be giving a presentation on art quilt appraisals.

I am working on additional speakers, so stay posted for more details as they develop. Please let me know if you would like to volunteer, or have ideas that will make this a great event.
