   OPEN TO SAQA MEMBERS ONLY


Upcycle! (SAQA Global - All members)   •   Quilt Festival Houston 2019
Deadline:  March 31, 2019

Repurposing used materials is one of the most effective solutions there is to deal with today's environmentally devastating waste issues. Fiber art also has a rich tradition of incorporating elements that would otherwise be discarded by turning them into compelling compositions.

Challenge yourself to make a work that either incorporates recycled materials, be it cloth or non-fiber items, or that represents such a process visually. Only wall-hung, two dimensional, representational or abstract work will be considered for the exhibit.

Premiere Location

International Quilt Festival, Houston Texas (October 2019)
