REMINDER -Call for Entry: SILVER ANNIVERSARY Celebrations call for all new Traveling SAQA TRUNK SHOW QUILTS

SAQA 2014 Anniversary Trunk Show
OPEN to ALL SAQA members - (this is a re-post of an earlier Call to Entry)

Join SAQA members from around the world in celebrating our 25th amazing year with your trunk show submission! The Traveling TRUNK SHOW Exhibition Committee asks SAQA members to create a 10" x 7" art quilt that showcases their artistic expression.

The 2014 Anniversary Trunk Show will premiere at the 2014 SAQA conference in Washington, DC, and then travel all across the United States and around the world.   
A group of quilts from this exhibition will be chosen by jurors Linda Colsh and Margaret "Peg" Keeney to become a permanent part of the collection of the National Quilt Museum in Paducah, Kentucky.

Submissions for the 2014 Anniversary Trunk Show must meet the following criteria:

    *Quilted pieces must have three layers, and measure 10" high x 7" wide (25.4 x 17.8 cm) in a PORTRAIT orientation. All embellishments must fit within the 10" x 7" size.

    *SAQA will mount artwork on a 12 x 9" black backing board.

    *Quilts could travel for up to three years. They must stay with the Trunk during the entire exhibition period.

    *Participation fee is $10 to cover cost of materials and return shipping.

    *If you wish your quilt to be for sale, please indicate its price on the entry form. 

    *Due to the constraints of international travel costs, SAQA will not be insuring this exhibition. An insurance waiver is included in the form.       
Quilts are due no later than Friday, January 31, 2014 to the SAQA 2014 Trunk Show Coordinator, Eileen Doughty.
