Weekly Spotlight

Have you created your Benefit Auction piece yet? There are only two weeks left until the deadline!

The Benefit Auction is SAQA's premiere fundraising event--last year we raised almost $80,000. We need YOUR artwork to help us do it again! All proceeds make it possible to travel our exhibitions around the globe.

Thank you to all the artists who have already donated. We truly couldn't fulfill our mission of promoting art quilts and the artists who create them without your generosity.

The Benefit Auction will take place online from September 15 - October 8, 2017.
