SAQA Central Canada has had many new members join us in the past six months and Regional Meetings are the very best way to have all members get together from time to time and enjoy meeting and getting to know each other in a casual, but meeting focused environment. While we know everyone's schedule is full at this time of year, I hope your will mark your calendar now and plan to join us on the 26th. There is definitely beautiful new textile work underway, we need these opportunities to get together and  share our new work, event news and encourage the members of SAQA to work together to ensure that our communities and the greater textile world is aware of what is happening in our Region. We would love to have each of you bring news to share as well as some new work.

I would be pleased to entertain your suggested Agenda items for the meeting, and you may send those to me at either or by no later than November 20th with thanks . The Agenda will be sent via email to those who confirm their intended Regional Meeting attendance to either of the addresses above.

Hoping that those of you who have not entered a SAQA exhibition are looking closely at all of the opportunities for your work to be shared all across the US and Internationally through SAQA sponsored exhibits in various venues. The events postings are sent to all members by our Executive Director, Martha Sielman in her monthly Newsletter and via SAQA e-News at least once a month. All of this information is posted for you at our main SAQA website

Please plan to join us and help me welcome our newest Central Canada members, share some of your new work at our CREATIVE BUFFET, and learn more about all of the wonderful opportunities that SAQA has to offer to local area, Canadian, US and international members.

Refreshments will be served with treats donations welcome.
