Introduction to the Challenges:
We are excited about our first SAQA Seminar! To help members engage with the topics that will be presented, we’re offering some small optional challenges in a 5” x 7” size. One challenge is planned for each of the five units of this Seminar. Each challenge exercise will incorporate something different learned from that unit’s topic, yet the pieces will all relate to each other as well.
The overall theme of these challenges is “Stitching Through the Seasons.” You can choose to do any or all of the challenges offered. If you do one per unit, when you are finished with the Seminar, you will have a series of 4-5 pieces, all the same size.
As each unit progresses, we look forward to seeing what others are working on as we post photos of our 5” x 7” pieces in progress. This will be a positive forum to encourage one another, to ask questions, and to stimulate one another’s creativity. We’ll have the opportunity to share our little challenge pieces with other participants via a special topic in the SAQA Seminar Discussion Group.
The challenges are designed to be optional, open-ended, and fun. If you don’t like what’s suggested, feel free to devise your own and share it with the group. All projects related to this Seminar are welcome!
