IMMEDIATE ATTENTION: Opportunity not to be missed... JUDITH MARTIN'S "Meditation Panels" Workshop in Gros Morn, NFLD - a gift from a SAQA friend who cannot attend.

Dear SAQA Central Canada Members.....

I am gifting my Conference Package -  my fully paid seat at Judy Martin's  workshop, and am offering this to a SAQA member who can arrange right away to get to Newfoundland and take part.

Meditation Panels
When: October 16,17,18  2015  - Morne National Park 

The workshop is a "quiet" workshop.  The four large panels on which it is based are stunning hand stitched and quilted works made by community members working with Judy on Manitoulin Island. They were shown earlier this summer in Kitchener and were part of the World of Threads show in Oakville.

This Workshop opportunity is part of Fibre Arts Newfoundland Conference scheduled for NEXT WEEK in Newfoundland - and what a truly special opportunity to have three days of concentrated time with Judy and other students in the workshop weekend: More Details at the link here:
