New Year = New Exhibit!

SAQA WC Co-Rep, Katie Stein Sather, and several of our SAQA colleagues are also members of FAN -- the Fibre Art Network.   The group describes itself as (and I quote):

"...a co-operative of self-defined artists based in Western Canada. The co-operative was first conceived in the spring of 1998 by British Columbians Pat Crucil and Gail Hunt and then organized later that year by Gail. The group is committed to promoting fibre as an art form and each other as artists."

The group's latest offering is an exhibit entitled "Canadiana" -- which opened at the New Zealand Quilt Symposium Manawatu,  now on and running through January 21, 2015.  Participating SAQA members include Terry Aske, Helene Blanchet, Joyce Brown, Diane Duncan, Dianne Firth, Jaynie Himsl, Marcie Horswill, Karen Johnson, Judi MacLeod, Pippa Moore (curator), Judith Panson, Jenny Perry and Katie Stein Sather.

Congratulations on an auspicious opening -- and best wishes for a successful show tour!
