I am so very excited to announce my position as the SAQA Regional Representative for Alabama and Mississippi. This venture is the next step in expanding my fiber art. As Regional Representative, I will have the privilege of serving the art quilt community in AL and MS with the great organization of Studio Art Quilt Associates. SAQA offers many resources as an International organization of quilt artist over 3300 strong! I have completed my training and am currently acquainting myself with the leaders of local connections/pods and setting goals for our Region! If you are not familiar with SAQA, I encourage you to go their website http://www.saqa.com and see the many benefits and opportunities they have to offer! A local connection/pod will be starting in the Fairhope/Daphne area of Alabama. Please consider joining this new group which will begin meeting soon. If you are already a member, look for my introduction email coming out soon through SAQA email. If you wish to join SAQA, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for a discount code on your membership or renewal application. Together we make each other better!
I am an artist and my preferred medium is textiles. I currently teach traditional quilting however, artistic manipulation of fabrics and fibers is my real passion.
I have won awards for several quilt piecing techniques and art quilts, including thread painting. I love to paint, dye, and color fabric using fabric paints, inks, screen printing, mono-printing, rust, sun activated dyes, sun printing, air pens, etc... .
