2014 - A Year of Growth for SAQA Atlantic

2014 was a year of growth for SAQA Atlantic with the addition of 13 new members to our group and 1 SAQA member to our region. All regions are diverse geographically, but SAQA Atlantic is especially so with membership reaching out over four provinces with some reasonably large bodies of water separating us. We get very excited to welcome new members and in 2014, we are especially pleased to have new members joining us from all four provinces!  

This year we were very happy to welcome:

Nancy MacIntosh of Bridgetown, Nova Scotia
Kim Larracy of Dieppe, New Brunswick
Kathy Tidswell of Burtts Corner, New Brunswick
Barb Perry of Fredericton, New Brunswick
Maggie Ross of Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia
Marilyn O'Brien of Shediac Bridge, New Brunswick
LaVerne MacCallum Deakin of Fredericton, New Brunswick
Ann Schroeder of Mabou, Nova Scotia
Else Flack of St.Philips, Newfoundland
Holly McLean of Bathurst, New Brunswick
Christel Frischmuth of Collette, New Brunswick
Joann Dnistransky of Amherst, Nova Scotia
Sue Berube of Riverview, New Brunswick
and Heather Jarmyn of Stratford, Prince Edward Island to our region

SAQA is an international membership of fibre artists, collectors, curators, business owners and fibre enthusiasts. Membership allows us to make connections, offers us opportunities and provides information and inspiration. 2015 promises to be an exciting year for SAQA as it enters its 26th year.

In the Atlantic Region, there is also much excitement being created with the announcement of our second Regional Exhibition, Structures. We are also planning our second Regional Retreat, an opportunity for our group to gather and grow as fibre artists, for this spring. 

The SAQA Blog allows our group to stay connected and Chris and I encourage all our members to provide us with information and photos of interest to the membership. As well, we welcome all questions and suggestions. Always feel free to reach out and make the most of your membership. 

Wishing everyone a wonderfully creative, healthy and fulfilling 2015!
