Members of Studio Art Quilt Associates were given a challenge today.
Seems that SAQA has struck a deal with Aurifil, the thread manufacturers, to have a special "SAQA Signature Collection" -- twelve colors of thread in a box, with the SAQA logo and a SAQA brochure, which will be sold as a fundraiser for the organization. And "We need your vote to decide on which palette of threads best represents SAQA."
I love Aurifil, my favorite thread, so I thought this was a nifty idea.
And I love voting, so I went to the site and checked out the three palettes.
One of these is supposed to "represent SAQA."
This is a hard one.
Here's Set C. Art quilters as medium darks. Not even jewel tones, let's gray down that gold and coral lest anybody get a headache. Perfect for an afghan in your TV room.
Which one best represents SAQA? Well, what do you think?
If you're a SAQA member, you should go vote here.
But whether you're a member or not, I'm interested in your vote. And unlike SAQA, who wants just the vote, ma'am, I'm interested in your reasoning.
The SAQA voting doesn't close till next Tuesday so you have some time to think about it. I'll continue to think about it too and let you know what I decide.
