Foot In the Door

Let's show Minnesota what fiber artists do! "Foot in the Door 4" is an open exhibition for all Minnesota artists. The exhibit takes place every ten years at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. See for details. Submissions must fit in a 12" square box. Drop off and registration begins Thursday, February 4th, 2010. Tip: Your art will stand out if it is smaller than 12". Don't miss out on the opportunity or you will have to wait until 2020.

January Get Together

January 1, 2010

Dear MN SAQA members,

Happy New Year!  I hope your artistic journey leads you into exciting places this year.  As always, Cyndi Kaye and I would love to hear from you about your ideas for get-togethers and programs in the coming year.  Our plan is to arrange something for every other month.  Meanwhile, Cyndi Kaye, the computer queen, is working on our blog-  It’s not up to date at the moment, but add it to your favorites list for future information.

The plan for January has changed.  Due to the fact that the opening for Common Threads at the Textile Center includes a light supper and annual meeting, we thought we would separate our SAQA meeting from that event.  Instead, we are going to meet for coffee at Cyndi Kaye’s in Roseville on Saturday, January 23rd at10:00.  We’ll do show and tell and talk about your ideas for 2010, if you have any.  We will also talk about the SAQA exhibit at the June MQ show, for which entries will be due in March.  After the meeting, it is just a short trip over to the Textile Center for those who want to see the exhibit.

We hope you’ll all join us and show us what you’re working on.

Email Cyndi for her address and a google map.
