SAQA Oregon is a very active region with approximately 195 members, two co-representatives and three local connections - Portland, Central Oregon and Valley South. We have a biannual regional juried exhibit, a biannual regional conference, local challenge quilt exhibits, a biannual retreat and occasionally a non-juried showcase exhibit.
Local connection meetings give us the opportunity to meet with fellow artistic members. Meetings can include lectures, featured members showing their artwork, hands on presentations and always a show and tell. They also can include lunch or a picnic, holiday potluck, a field trip to local museums or even a vineyard.
Our website contains lots of information about our current events and a gallery of members artwork. We have a SAQA Facebook page and each local connection has their own Facebook page or email contact list.
Our newsletter is published on the 10th of each month by our editor, Cynthia Cangley. Articles need to be sent to her by the 7th of the month, firstname.lastname@example.org. Past newsletters can be found on our website, SAQAOregon.com
Our local connections meet the third week of the month and visitors are always welcome. Meeting place and contact information can be found on our website SAQAOregon.com
