Become a Visionary

We're looking for people who look outward to see the big picture. SAQA's Visionaries are a leadership group who invest in our vibrant global art quilt movement.

A monthly gift of just $20 makes you part of the Visionaries group. Or you can give a generous gift of $240 annually.

As a Visionary, you will:

  • receive the bi-annual Visionaries newsletter which highlights early bird news about upcoming happenings in SAQA and exciting global textile trends;
  • attend private Visionary receptions at the SAQA conferences like the wonderful presentation by Tim Jenison at the San Antonio TEXtiles event;
  • participate in “Tea with Martha,” a regular series of online get-togethers with other Visionaries held throughout the year, hosted by our executive director Martha Sielman and a guest textile expert; and
  • be recognized in SAQA’s annual report, in the SAQA Journal, and on the SAQA website.

Please support SAQA with an important gift that helps create strong foundation of support for SAQA, ensuring that art quilts have the visibility and recognition they deserve.

“My fabric world is so important to me. I support SAQA because I think it is so important to encourage the exhibiting and selling of art quilts.” - Sandy Teepen
