The capacity to share creative space with others is magic - whether on retreat, a catchup over coffee or the interaction that occurs during Open Studios. Mel Forrest and Chris Jones shared their art, methods and materials last weekend at Aliquilts. Then there's the presence of other artists who've encouraged and supported each of us including Sue Dennis , Kate Oszko, members of our State guilds and textile art groups. The magic of the weekend will last for a very long time in each of us. Staying with that theme, the SAQA MoB (Members of Brisbane) will meet this Saturday at the Queensland Art Gallery cafe from 10 am - bring some show and tell and/or artists cards. There's also the SAQA Oceania collection available for viewing - a collection of 12 inch square art quilts donated by Oceania members for SAQA's Benefit Auction in September. If you are interested in joining SAQA, the Queensland Quilters or the Queensland Quilters Art Quilt Group please contact me for more information.
