Symposium Calls for Table-Top Proposals

Oregon Regional Conference

The Oregon Regional SAQA Conference will be held September 22, 2016 at the Willamette Heritage Center in Salem.  We are planning an exciting program for the event and are hoping several of you will be a part of the presentation . 

CONFERENCE THEME: New Dimensions . . .  into the future

CONCEPT: Looking at current trends, new ideas, processes, materials, techniques, etc. in the field of art quilting and fiber art.

In your art life:
What tricks do you know that make your work easier?
Are you working with a new process?
Have you developed a new technique?
Have you found a unique material to use in your art?

If the answer is, yes, please consider sharing it with others at the Conference.

THE PLAN: We will offer six members an opportunity to host a demonstration table during the afternoon session.  You can use the table in any way you choose to share what you know with others.  The attendees will be divided into six groups and rotate from table to table every fifteen (15) minutes. 

SUBMIT YOUR PROPOSAL:  Write out a proposal for what you would share with the group.  Include as many details as you can.  What will attendees learn from your presentation?  Why is it unique or pushing the boundaries of fiber art?  Send photos, if you have them.If you have presented this to other groups, include information about who and where.  If you will be using messy materials, include your requirements and how you will protect carpeting, etc. 

There will be no access to water during the presentations.  No noxious fumes allowed.  Will you require an electrical outlet?

Send your proposal to:       Annette McFarlane at
Proposals due: May 1, 2016
Acceptances sent: May 15, 2016

Registration fee for selected presenters will be waived in appreciation of their generosity.
