Alice Beasley 
The Art of Illusion
The name Alice Beasley is synonymous in the Bay Area with portraits in fabric of people and things—dancers, take-out food, water, soldiers, flowers, race horses, children, swimmers, family members, and more.  Her quilts have a painterly quality, but she works her magic without paints, dyes or surface treatments. Starting with ordinary fabrics, translucent silks and organzas, Alice layers and fuses snippets to create a collaged composition. She’ll describe this process—from inspirations to techniques to completed images—in her talk, The Art of Illusion.  You can read more about Alice at www.alicebeasley.com.

Up Close and Personal: Selecting Quilts for Exhibition
Get up close and personal with a trunk show of small quilts from the NorCal region of the Studio Art Quilt Associates in this
hands-on activity led by SAQA fiber artists. The event begins with an introduction to guidelines for critiquing and selecting quilts for
exhibition. Then participants break into groups for an up-close look at a selection of pieces from the trunk show. Next each group
will discuss which piece(s) to propose for inclusion in a show, and then pitch their choice to everyone in the room. It’s a fun and
lively activity that’ll give guild members a new way of looking at quilts.

Modern Improvisation/Traditional Inspiration

Always fascinated by the secret stories of old objects, Stacey is drawn to the mystery and individual expression of vintage quilts. She will examine how the works of mostly unknown women have influenced her craft and how her craft has changed her life. She will also talk about the process of finding and forming a vibrant community around cloth, needle and thread.
