SAQA Seminar 2020 - Your Professional Toolkit
Launched in 2016, SAQA Seminar is a project offered through the Education Committee just for SAQA members. We wanted to provide members with opportunities to learn more about a particular topic, share their expertise, ask questions, have conversations, and meet new people.
Offered once a year over a two month period, SAQA Seminar is a multi-media collection of content that includes articles, video conversations, and more! All the offerings will be accessible online and participants will be sent weekly emails.
We are confident everyone will find something interesting, instructive or inspiring whether you’re new to art quilting or you’ve been creating art with fabric and stitching for years. And remember, all this great content is totally FREE for SAQA members!

SAQA Seminar FAQs
What is SAQA Seminar?
Launched in 2016, SAQA Seminar is an annual project offered through the Education Committee just for SAQA members. We wanted to provide members with opportunities to learn more about a particular topic, share their expertise, ask questions, have conversations, and meet new people.
SAQA Seminar is a multi-media collection of content that will be released weekly over a 6 week period. It will include articles, resources, video conversations, and more. All the offerings are accessible online. (It’s not a traditional retreat, workshop, class or conference. It’s all virtual.)
I can't access the resources - what is my login?
The members-only content of SAQA Seminar is available to current SAQA members only. You will need to login to your mySAQA account to access the information. Don't remember your mySAQA password? Here is a link to request a password reset email. If you require additional assistance, please contact us at email@example.com.
Why do I need to register?
Since SAQA Seminar is only available to members, you do need to register first. This ensures that you receive the weekly SAQA Seminar email plus receive access to all the online opportunities. Remember to add saqa.com to your list of approved senders so our emails don't end up in your spam. However, all the information will also be available online.
You will need to login to your mySAQA account as part of the registration process. Don't remember your mySAQA password? Here is a link to request a password reset email. If you require additional assistance, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
While you can register without logging in, we do prefer that you login first. Otherwise we have to merge your records and this may delay your access to the online resources.
Due to my work / travel schedule, I can't participate all the time. Is this a problem?
That's totally fine! SAQA Seminar is not an online course with classes that you are required to attend.
You can begin exploring when we kick off on January 27 or you may find your way to all the great resources several weeks later.
