Here are some pics from the SAQA meeting in Sydney during the Quilt Show. It was a useful and positive meeting. Ideas discussed included mentorship between Oceania members, making us of the blog, regional gatherings between members, a possible exhibition, using SAQA brochures and recruiting new members.
This is the group, holding SAQA publications.
L-R: Lisa Walton, Cath Babidge, Sue Dennis, Rasa Mauragis.
Here is Sue in front of her quilt "In the Moonlight" selected for Hands All Around, 2013.
