AK SAQA members Kate Beebe and Gail Ramsey <> traveled to the Palmer, Alaska on Thursday August 4th to give a presentation to the Valley Quilter’s Guild. The Valley Quilters Guild, Inc. was formed in 1985 to promote quilting in the Matanuska Valley. They currently have a membership of over 200 quilters.
Kate and Gail shared dozens of art quilts with more than 50 quild members.
Many of the guild members took the time to enjoy each individually.
Kate shared her experience of moving from being a traditional quilter working with patterns to being an artist who explores many different techniques in her work.
Gail discussed aspects of being a professional artist.
It appears everyone had a great time learning about SAQA, art quilts, and how to make the leap towards designing original quilt compositions.
If you are interested in learning more about SAQA and art quilting, please join us for our next meeting which is scheduled for Tuesday September 13th from 10AM -12PM at the Kaladi Brothers on Brayton.
