The Florida region is an active vibrant SAQA region.  We have eight pods that meet on varying schedules.  We periodically have regional juried exhibits, and retreats as well as the occasional regional class offering with national quilt artists.  Our members have contributed art to our own Roaming Galleries of which we have three that are used to educate Florida quilt guilds and other groups about the Art Quilt and the SAQA organization.  We have a monthly newsletter and a Facebook group.

We are proud to say we have hosted a global SAQA exhibit here in Florida at the Ruth Funk Center for Textile Arts in 2019 and we will be hosting a SAQA Conference in St. Petersburg, Florida.  We look forward to welcoming all SAQA members to our sunny Gulf Coast and we hope you will be able to join us.
