WA Craft Show 2013 and SAQA's "This is a Quilt"

Songbird  #1: Robin, Vivika Hansen DeNegre
On Wednesday Dad and I fly out to the WA (West Australian) Craft Show at the Claremont Showgrounds in Perth. The Craft Show and the WA Wood Show runs from 2-4 August. Okay - in truth Dad is visiting his sister but I will be at the show with SAQA's Trunk Show C "This is a Quilt". The exhibition comprises 43  framed art quilts - each 12 inches square - and I'll be giving floor talks throughout the show. I've chosen five of the quilts that, for me, give an fabulous insight into the breadth of materials and methods used by their makers to create a quilt. Artists such as Vivika Hansen DeNegre have shared personal insights specifically for the floor talk. This is a very special exhibition of SAQA's talented membership. Anyone joining SAQA and becoming part of our Oceania region gets a 10% discount on membership - simply quote the code AGT in the discount code box, and your reduced membership fee will appear at checkout. "This is a Quilt" exhibition will also tour to Newcastle, Sydney, New Zealand, Melbourne, Brisbane, Townsville and Adelaide before returning to the United States in November. If you happen to be in Perth next weekend, please come by and say hello. I'd love to meet you!
