Central Oregon SAQA meets Thursday, March 23 at 3:30 pm……This is a change from the regular schedule (third Thursday of the month at 3 p.m.) BECAUSE…of classroom availability.

Helen Brisson will talk about the ways/hows/ and joys of creating 3-D art.   Donna Rice will demonstrate options for framing/completing submissions to Oregon SAQA’s juried show Bridge.

Pathway participants need to register their quilt with the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show….SAQA Oregon is listed under the Special Exhibit categories.
