This is a photo from the first meeting of the Quilting Arts Alliance in Athens. We met this week at the main Athens-Clarke County library on Baxter St. for an organizational meeting. There were six of us this time, with more promised to join us next month. Gloria, Sylvia, Diane and Marilyn are in the photo. Suzanne and I were also there. We decided to have a Shiva Paintstik demo next month (I'll do the demo) and made a list of other programs we'd be interested in having. Diane will also give an upcoming program for us. Here's to a good year!
