Call for Entry Deadline


Open to SAQA DC/DE/MD/WV, NC/VA, and PA primary and secondary region members only.

Exhibition Concept:

“Sew to Speak”, a SAQA Tri-Regional Exhibition, will take place at BlackRock Center for the Arts during National Women’s History Month.  It will explore ideas of meaning in textile art by exploring how contemporary art quilters express themselves in their work. In addition to juried work by SAQA members from the mid-Atlantic area, the exhibition will include several works by the Pixeladies that express political and social justice messages. 

Meaning in art quilts can take many forms. How do you express yourself in quilting? And what do you express? Do you express emotions, such as joy, love, pride, or grief?  Do you express identities that are important to you, such as heritage, nationality, family, or gender? Do you use quilting to express opinions or support causes?

“Sew to Speak” welcomes your voice.
