I had a great time in Newcastle at the Stitches and Craft Fair - and met more of our SAQA Oceania members. It's always great to be able to catch up when, for most of us, contact is more usually by digital means. Thanks to the Novacastrian Quilters who hung the exhibition - all I had to do was turn up and talk! As always, it was great to share "This is a Quilt" and SAQA with new people and our long term members. The textile art scene in the Newcastle region is nothing short of vibrant - loved the Creative Embroiderers and Textile Artists who had made a gorgeous textile art rainbow as part of their display.
