Are you interested in owning a gallery and showroom for Art Quilts?
21st Century Quilts, A Showroom for Studio Quilts, is closing by the end of this year. If anyone is interested in taking it over, in a different location (the current one is already taken by Denim Saloon, to expand next year), please contact Shirley Neary via e-mail or on facebook — She is selling the name, concept, sign, benches, and some of the inventory. A viewing can be arranged at any time.
We have scheduled our first meeting for Saturday, August 11 at 10am in Omaha. For safety reasons, we are not posting the location on the internet – please contact one of us to find out where we are meeting.We will be talking about goals and focusing the direction of our regional group; upcoming opportunities; and just getting to know our members.
Please bring a piece of your artwork to share with the group. It will be nice to see the different styles and talents of our members. Also, we encourage you to bring a friend along with you. Our meetings are open to the public; you do not need to be a member of SAQA to attend any meeting that we schedule. The only closed portion will be exhibits; the SAQA policy is that any exhibit by this group must only contain SAQA members’ artwork.
We look forward to seeing you on Aug 11,
