Most of the artists in the Stitching California exhibit are part of the Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA) organization. We are so grateful they are, because SAQA has agreed to provide docents on select Saturdays throughout the exhibit's run time at the museum. These SAQA docents will all be artists who have work featured in the exhibition. They will be in the gallery ready to talk about their work and answer your questions.
