On Saturday, Sept. 21, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA) brings together its regional members and the public at the Grace Hudson Museum to celebrate a shared love of quilt art. Artists who have contributed to “Stitching California,” the Museum’s current exhibit, will speak about their exhibited pieces. All other attendees are invited to bring a fiber artwork for an organized show and tell (one art piece per person). Textile artist and “Stitching California” juror Kate Pasquini Masopust will give a presentation. The event is free with Museum admission and completely free to SAQA members.

“Stitching California: Fiber Artists Interpret the State’s People, Life, and Land” explores a creative practice rooted in traditional quilting but expanded to encompass modern techniques, personal experience, and social awareness.

The Grace Hudson Museum is at 431 S. Main St. in Ukiah. General admission is $4; $10 per family; $3 for students and seniors; free to all on the first Friday of the month; and always free to members. For more information please go to or call (707) 467-2836.
