Pledge Your Support and Save the Date

As you are all no doubt aware, SDA national has put out a request for donations to help stabilize the organization going forward.  To date over $50,000 has been raised.  This is such good news and we encourage you to add your donation to the rising amount.  Please see information below on how to pledge.

We thought it might be helpful to gather as a group after the new year to be able to update and assess together where we stand as a national organization as well as discuss what events we might want to plan for our own region going forward.  And of course, we are always curious as to what other members are up to so please think about bringing a bit of show and tell.

To that end, we would like to suggest having this gathering over a pot luck dinner on January 17th, 6:30pm at Adrienne’s house in Watertown.  We know this is a month away but please mark your calendars to join us and RSVP so we have a sense of who will be able to come.

American Tapestry Alliance Emerge Grant

Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor, ATA is now able to subsidize a limited number of memberships for new and emerging, young tapestry artists. Young is defined as no older than 40. Emerging artists are those who are in the early stage of their career, who have garnered some achievements, but not an extensive record of accomplishments.
