Time to renew SAQA Membership for many SAQA Central Canada Region members...

May and June are always the months when so many of us joined or are now up for renewal for our memberships in this outstanding International Association supporting the Fibre Arts and the Artists around the world who contribute their stunning new work to our SAQA Exhibitions.
Join Us Today
As we start the summer season, this is a good time to make a note to RENEW your membership before all of the Calls to Entry and other great events like our Annual Conference (next year in beautiful Portland, Oregon) happen during 2014/15.
Renewing your Membership is so easy at the SAQA website using the link here or  join now . Hoping you will visit YOUR members page or contact Bethany Garner, Central Canada Regional Rep.  for your renewal date and stay with us as we head into Fall 2014. Exciting things are definitely happening.... please plan to stay with us!
