SAQA Blog Hop

Have you been checking out the SAQA Oceania Blog Hop?

SAQA stands for Studio Art Quilt Associates, an international group of art quilters. The SAQA Oceania group is having a Blog Hop this month featuring members' studios. Many SAQA members are also members of SCQuilters and SCQuilters member Lisa Walton is the Oceania Rep. Lisa has been posting the blog hop locations each day to the SCQ group. So far we've seen:

Mel Forrest's Studio

Sue Dennis in Brisbane.
Sue's whole house is used for her creative pursuits.

Lisa Walton

Linda Robertus
Linda is originally from the Netherlands and has been here in Australia since 2008.

Averil Stuart-Head
Averil - originally from New Zealand, lives near Sulmona in Italy. It is absolutely gorgeous and the light is amazing.

Jenny Bowker 
Jenny said, "It is not big, or spectacular or even tidy. I decided not to clean up - I simply do not have time and I thought it was time that someone showed the way it is when they are working in it. So all those who are messy when working - you will feel at ease in my space."

Sally Dunn Sally's blog includes a list of other participants, so you can keep up with other Blog Hop participants as they make their studios available.

So if, like me, you love to see other quilters' work spaces, you're invited to snoop!
