Blogring get togethers???

Posted by debraroby on May 2, 2005

Ok, this is early in the year for me… but it’s too late for Chicago or Paducah… so maybe it’s NOT too late to plant the idea.

Anyone interested in planning/attending a face-to-face get together for blogring members at major events? Just meeting for drink before dinner… or a breakfast before a long day begins??

The only “big” events I know I will attending this year are PIQF and AQT.. both in the fall. But there are so many things happening in the next few months..

On another note completely. In the past I bemoaned my lack of “connection” to others in real life. Other artists, people who I could “network” with… people in general. I have taken two proactive steps recently.

#1. I joined SAQA. My first meeting is this Wednesday. I’m sure I will see some of you there.

#2. I joined a regional art center near me. And, given the choice of spending $40 as an individual, or $50 as an artist, I chose to “declare” myself and joined as an artist.

small steps… but steps nonetheless.

    Good for you! This are big steps! Don’t sell yourself short. And now that you’ve opening the door, lots of really great stuff came come on in!

  2. Okay, what’s AQT? I was hoping to go to Houston, but that’s off for now. I did PIQF last year. Don’t think it’s in the cards for this year with DH leaving for Iraq in October… I’m afraid the only shows I’ll get to this year are San Diego and Road to California. sigh.

    Hurrah for you, Debra. I think it is a big deal to join these organizations and I’m glad that you joined the one group as an artist.

    I want to go to the Houston show, but I don’t know if I will.

    I’ll be at PIQF, that would be cool to meet up!

  5. I think AQT is Art Quilts Tahoe, Lisa, but I could be wrong.

    I’m not traveling at all this year. :(
