The SDA Seattle weekday meeting for September 2013 will be held at the home/studio of SDA member Gay Jensen. Gay will share her artwork and give an informal “dress rehearsal” of her talk “Passion for Paint: One Woman’s Love Affair with Painting on Fabric” that she will be presenting formally to a weaving organization and a quilting organization this fall. If you are not familiar with Gay’s work you can look at her website http://www.gayjensen.com .
Date: September 4, 2013
Location: 12545 42nd Ave NE, Seattle, 98125
Important: This location is a little tricky to find so use your GPS or go online to get directions, please don’t contact Gay asking how to get there since giving directions is NOT her strong suit! Also, the entrance to Gay’s house is in the BACK, not on the street side.
Time: Noon to 3 — From noon-12:30 you can tour Gay’s home and studio, Gay’s talk will begin promptly at 12:30 and last approximately one hour, and following that the group can do show and tell, talk about future meetings, etc.
What to bring: Your lunch. Gay will provide beverages for the group. Also bring anything you want for show and tell. Please note that Gay’s home is a “no outdoor shoes indoors” household so bring your slippers if you want, or wear your favorite socks, and be prepared to remove your outdoor shoes when you arrive.

Also: Save the date Wednesday, October 2, 2013, 12 – 3 pm when we’ll be meeting at Okan Arts to learn about and shop Japanese yukata cottons.
