Dayton, Ohio Parlour Meeting Held in January

On Saturday, January 8, 2011, twenty-seven SAQA Ohio members and their guests met in Beavercreek, a suburb of Dayton, for a Parlour Meeting. The event was hosted by well known quilt artist and SAQA Ohio member, Maria Elkins and her charming daughter. The event combined members from the Southwest and Central Ohio regions of Ohio. In many cases, this was the first time that members had had the opportunity to meet each other. A spectacular "show and tell" session served to introduce members and their work. In addition, Maria and her daughter provided a wonderful selection of snacks and beverages and attendees were able to network and share resources. A small selection of photos of the event were shared by member Terry Ann Hartzell. Unfortunately, artists names and titles of work were not available at press time. If your work is represented, please comment on the blog and identify yourself and the name of your art quilt. To date, parlour meetings have been held in Central Ohio and Southwest Ohio. How about it Cleveland? Any volunteers to get a group together in the Northeast?
