SAQA AUCTION 2010

posted by SHELLEY BRUCAR

It’s not too soon to start thinking which pieces you want from the SAQA (Studio Art Quilt Associates) 2010 Auction.  The auction starts September 20, and there are already 5 pages of donated 12″ squares ready to by viewed.   Last year’s Benefit Auction raised $47,325. The funds raised through the Auction are critical to supporting SAQA’s exhibitions, catalogs and outreach programs.
