More options to register for the SAQA Conference

Hi all!

If the whole conference just would not fit into your schedule or if one day was of more interest to you, now you can register for just one day!

There are a few spaces being opened up in the SAQA conference in Lincoln for one day participants.

You would need to register right away to grab one of these spots. It is a great opportunity to network with other fiber artists from around the world!
