Meetings and Events


SAQA Oregon Regional Conference
We need YOU to help us make the 2018 Oregon Regional Conference what YOU want it to be! The regional conference is a way for Oregon SAQA members to network, learn, exhibit some work, and be inspired. This is your chance to influence what happens at that event! We need at least one representative from each POD on the steering committee to reflect the interests of SAQA members across the state. The steering committee will decide the theme of the conference, select a keynote speaker, and coordinate a variety of activities and demonstrations for everyone attending the conference in Eugene in October 2018. We’ll use the ZOOM platform to hold virtual meetings so you won’t have to travel before the actual conference date. If you’re interested, please contact one of the co-chairs, Daisy Schrock, schrock32@gmail.com, or Katie Walwyn, ktwalwin@comcast.net, by May 10th.

Central Oregon Pod Meetings

Generally the third Thursday from 2-4pm at The Stitchin Post, 311 W Cascade St (Hwy 20/126) in Sisters, OR. Contact Jan Tetzlaff at jmtathome@hotmail.com to confirm meeting venue.

Next Meeting:
Our November Central Oregon SAQA meeting will be on Thursday 11/16 @ 3:00pm.  Due to a scheduling conflict the meeting will be @ the Sisters Artworks building (204 W Adams Ave, Sisters).  That location is 3 blocks from the Stitchin’ Post.

This meeting will be a recap of quilt shows including Houston Quilt Festival, Quilters Take Manhattan, Quilts=Art=Quilts, and Festival of Quilts Birmingham, England.  The next best thing to being there!  Look forward a very interactive meeting with several of our members reflecting on their inspiration from 3 very different shows.  Hopefully, you will be able to find some inspiration of your own.

Due to the location change expect a few extra emails reminding everyone of the change.  I am also asking for everyone’s announcements and brags.  Please forward any good news to share.  We learn and grow from each other.

I hope to see everyone there!  If you have questions or concerns, please contact Kristan Collins at colorkcc@icloud.com.
