A shop owner for an “art quilting” type shop here in Richmond has offered her
shop up for a regional meeting for us. We would need to schedule a date. I am
thinking about scheduling it in conjunction with a national teacher’s schedule at
the shop. Let me know by email what you would prefer. Anyone could attend a
meeting without attending a teaching schedule, but for those who don’t want to
just attend a meeting, this would give people a chance to learn from a national
If you have any other ideas for a regional meeting, let me know. The idea of
meeting during the Hampton Quilt Festival is still an option for a VA or regional
meeting. A meeting in Richmond would be a bit more central for everyone in the
state and there would be no fee just for the meeting.
I have a group in Richmond for fiber artists, called “Richmond Fiber Artists.” It is
not exclusive to art quilters and we have some weavers, etc. that belong. If you
are in the Richmond greater area and would like to participate, please let me
know. We will have a meeting on August 3 from 10 to 12 noon at Quilting
Adventures in Richmond. If you have any questions, please contact me. This is
a networking opportunity for SAQA members and hopefully we will have some
recruits eventually. See http://www.richmondfiberartists.com
