Snacks and drinks will be served. Members should bring a few of their art quilts and business cards or postcards to share. The facility also has a digital projector available for anyone interesting in making a power point presentation or mini workshop. Friends are welcome. Please RSVP to Maria. Our last parlour meeting was very exciting, so you won't want to miss this event.

Ohio Member, Shelly Brenner Baird featured in Sightlines Exhibition

Our very own Shelley Brenner Baird is one of 10 featured SAQA artists selected to participate in the Sightlines Exhibition sponsored by SAQA. Her piece is also featured in the beautiful hard cover book of the same name, available at the SAQA bookstore. It is unique in that it features a "centerfold" of all the works in the exhibition. Keeping in mind that each piece of textile art is 10 feet in width, this was a necessary feature. You can view the exhibit and listen to artist's interviews, including Shelley's at this link:

Congratulations Shelley!
