I was just sitting here developing some pics I took yesterday while I soda soak some cotton to take with me to Syracuse next week to use in my class at Quilting By The Lake, when I bopped on over to check my email. I’m so excited now! I’ve been juried in to SAQA as a JAM (Juried Artist Member)!
It seems like only yesterday when I first joined SAQA as a new art quilter. I didn’t slip into art quilting by way of a history of quilting. I took up quilting bed quilts for my grands to learn the basics. I tossed off the idea of becoming a Jam Member or any such aspiration as I just wanted to learn and get as good as I could at it. Seven years later, I said “What the heck! I may as well try.”
My new aquaintance, Steve Gyurina is a photographer at Artopia Giclee and he shot a portfolio of pictures for me. These are what I submitted and here they are!
