How to Register for Convention
We have two very exciting and different opportunities during preday.
First, if you have always wanted to try machine embroidery, this is your chance. Bernina of America will offer two different half day class projects. They will have their 700 series machines available for use during these classes.
Second, Lyn Weeks will teach “Pattern Drafting for Babies and Children”. This is a unique opportunity to learn to make changes in a pattern that will suit your design or size needs.
See the brochure (coming in late March) for further descriptions of these exciting offerings.
Put your thinking caps on and create an outfit for an 18” doll to enter in SAGA's 2013 Convention Contest. There will be three categories: Western, Play clothes and Party Clothes.

The board plans that some of these outfits will be donated for traveling trunk shows that will be taken by board members to various quilt/sewing expos to publicize and promote SAGA.We look forward to a great variety of eye candy!!
