PAQA Meeting

PAQA, The Professional Art Quilt Alliance was formed in January, 1993 by Barb Albrecht,
Maureen Bardusk,
Melody Johnson, Ruth Reyonlds, and Laura Wasilowski. Click the link for a slide show of current members work.
All the founders had been members
of other quilt organizations but felt the need to develop a new group with specific aims for
the innovative art quilt and art garment field.
The current Midwest group meets monthly at
the Glen Ellyn Library, a westerly suburb of Chicago.
Members come from Wisc, Iowa,
Indiana, and of course, IL.
Since the meeting begins at 10 am, many are on the road at a
very early hour. Why do they come? What do we do?
Bring work and show work
Encourage new artists in the field
Discuss professional issues
Share wisdom and experience

Thanks for mentioning me on your blog! I had forgotten how long ago it was that we started the group.
