The Western Canada Region is vast: the provinces of Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia and the Yukon Territory are an area of almost 3.4 million square kilometers (over 1.3 million square miles). The Northwest Territories and Nunavut add another 3.4 million square kilometers. There are around 100 SAQA members, mostly in the southern parts of the region. We rely on SAQA to bring us together as a fibre art community to share our experiences using Zoom meetings, newsletters, our own blog , Instagram posts and getting together whenever we are able. We also appreciate being part of the SAQA global community and all that has to offer us.
A Western Canada Newsletter is distributed via email about 10 times per year. Information for the next newsletter may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org any time.
There is one POD group in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia. They meet 5 times a year, usually the second Wednesday of January, March, May, September and November and try to plan a play day in July. Please contact Linda Ingham at email@example.com for information.
