New SAQA Rep

 I am pleased to pass the torch to Dawn Piasta of Dauphin, MB! Please help me in welcoming Dawn as the newest SAQA Western Canada co-rep.
After nearly six years of representing SAQA in Western Canada I have decided it is time to step down by the end of April. I have enjoyed spreading the word about this great organization, connect with talented quilt artists, assist in building the membership from a mere handful in 2007 when I was a single rep in this region of Canada to over 90 active members in the Western Canada region. There is strength in numbers! This has become apparent when Patti Morris and Jill Sullivan came aboard prompted by my invitation a little over two years ago.
Thank you, everybody for your support over the past six years. I will be around to lend Dawn a hand in getting established and familiar with the blog.
For now I encourage you to click on the member's page where I will introduce Dawn with images and a short bio.
