…to Susan E. from Regina! Susan is the winner of Portfolio 19.
Imagine my surprise when Susan’s name was drawn on August 1st. I was delighted when she agreed to meet with me to receive the book in person while I was in Regina running errands for Art Quilt Campus and my Italy workshop yesterday. It was nice to see her enthusiasm and joy in person when she received her prize. In the past prizes have been shipped to Newfoundland, Edmonton and Syracuse – to name just a few places where previous contest recipients live.
Ten talented and hard working quilt artists followed my invitation/challenge issued on June 25 through July 31st to join SAQA. The newest member signed up just before the deadline – the first new member signed up the day I published the new challenge. Wow – what a great response we have had! Thanks everyone (all 11 of you!), and welcome to Kristin R., Alison C., Debby S., Kit L., Jackie W., Judy K., Judy M., Bev. C., Tracey L., Brandy M. and of course Susan E. for embarking on a new and exciting path in their art quilt career!
Well, congratulations Susan! I guess I’ll just have to get my own Portfolio 19!
Sorry you didn’t win, Debby. You had a one in eleven chance of winning. You can access the online version of the Portfolio for free id you choose not to invest in the hard copy.
Thanks, Debby. Portfolio 19 is very inspiring. Definitely worth checking out – even online as Anna suggested.
As you know Anna, I was very excited to win Portfolio 19. It did not disappoint – very inspiring! I am also looking forward to exploring SAQA through my new membership.
Susan, It was great to connect in person yesterday. Thanks for your time! Enjoy the book!
