SAQA Conference Debrief!

This was the first SAQA conference I've attended and it exceeded my expectations! The presenters were relevant, the networking was priceless and the two local exhibitions I saw were inspirational; "Tarnish" in Rockville and "Radical Elements" in Silver Springs, MD are highly recommended. 

The conference gave me an opportunity to offer my fabrics to a national audience and the ability to meet other artists to swap ideas and network - just fabulous. I can now put a face to names I've seen on websites and social media over the years and feel more connected to the creative arts community. I would be remiss if I didn't mention how wonderful it was to reconnect with artists I already knew - it was fun to spend uninterrupted time with them!


I can't wait for artists to send photos of the creations they made from my fabrics! 

Thank you to Diane Write and Mary Lachman for helping me transport
and manage my inventory! 

It always feels like we eat and drink more than usual at these events - yippee!
