Fresh Start

We are making a fresh start with the SAQA- Atlantic Canada blog. We hope that it can become a useful tool for information exchange and communication within the region and with interested people around the world. Anything related to your activities as an art quilter are fodder for the blog. Please send announcements, photos and brags for me to publish. In addition, feel free to write longer pieces - tutorials, book reviews, reports on classes you have taken and personal reflections. The Submit button at the top of this page will open an email to me - just cut and paste your material and hit Send. I will look after the rest.

Kate Madeloso made a great suggestion that we publish a short bio and a picture of each member's work. I'd love to feature each of those as a separate post and then collect all of them on a tab at the top of this page. I am sure that visitors to the blog would enjoy scrolling through that info if it was all in one place. Who wants to start by sending me a 100 word bio/artist statement and one photo of her work? Please include the title, date of creation and size (h x w) of the artwork.


  1. Hi Chris,

    Great to see this SAQA blog coming alive! The Western Canada blog did 'feature members' -- alphabetically by last name, starting with 'Z' (or the letter closest to it. You might check out the format for inspiration. :-)

    Best wishes for happy blogging!

  2. Hi Chris,
    Great job with the blog! I loved reading about your members and seeing examples of their work - what a diverse and talented group! I'm looking forward to following along with SAQA Atlantic's news. Best of luck and success to you,

  3. Thanks for your feedback, Kate. It will take some time but I think the blog can become a useful tool for SAQA members in our far-flung region and simultaneously introduce our work to people outside the region. It is great that you are getting a taste through the member profiles. I hope to get a lot more posted in the next few weeks. I will also post a report on our first ever regional show which travelled to three venues this spring/summer.
