2012 Vermont Surface Design Association ~ Twin Meetings

Two dates, Two locations, Two possibilities to Meet!

Because our state is so vertically shaped, distance makes meeting everyone a challenge. So, in an effort to reach out to all of our far-flung Vermont members, I hope by having two meets, it will make it easier for more people to attend at least one if not both.

At the meets, we’ll share our artwork, and have an opportunity to browse through the SDA Swatch Library. Then we’ll spend time discussing our next Members’ Exhibit(s)


Painting ‘The Quilting Bee’ by Grandma Moses
