Please mark your calendar:

Everyone interested in SAQA (Studio Art Quilts Associates) is welcome and encouraged to attend. Bring Friends, and RSVP to garner@kingston.net

The SAQA Central Canada Group will meet on Tuesday, November 29, 2011 at the Odessa Fairgrounds Hall located in the Village of Odessa just west of Kingston. Every member is welcome and encouraged to attend, and to bring a friend who you might feel is interested in SAQA membership. The meeting will be hosted by SAQA Regional Representative, Bethany Garner, and will begin with Business Meeting at 10:30 am to allow for travel time by members coming from a distance. Please plan to participate in our "Creative Buffet" sharing during the late morning, as we so enjoy seeing YOUR new work.

Agenda items are welcome from all members. Please forward to Bethany at garner@kingston.net no later than November 15th. Pat Caffery, SYNTHESIS II Curator, will have a report for all of us to share the latest news about the "next steps" for our exciting Exhibition.

Discussion about future meeting dates/venues will be at the top of the list. Your input is very important and we encourage members who are willing to host a regional meeting to please advise your Regional Representatives: Sharon Collins, Dwayne Wanner or Bethany Garner.

After the am meeting, please join us as we share a members-provided POTLUCK LUNCH at 12:30 pm (coffee/tea/water provided), followed by an afternoon of visiting and moving through a few techniques demonstrations shared by local members. We hope you will be able to stay throughout the afternoon if at all possible. A small "donation" to help cover the hall rental will be appreciated.

DIRECTIONS: The Odessa Fairgrounds Hall is located just south of the Odessa exit off Highway 401, and a quick drive from 401 to the stop lights in the village. Proceed south through the lights and the entrance to the Fairgrounds property will be on your left about one city block past the stop lights.
