The first non-American SAQA president, Lisa Walton, discusses SAQA and what it’s about, its founder Yvonne Porcella, and the vast scale of exhibits across the globe that they present. Next, she shares a fast and fun fusible quilt design that is also a fantastic stash buster and a technique inspired by Bargello quilts. Lisa also talks about her textile tours.

Then, Gayle Schliemann talks about Cosplay, how it includes fans of costumes, comic book characters that gather at conventions around the world, and the work that goes into making a costume. She discusses how her sewing skills and BERNINA capabilities allow her to do unexpected and unique details on her creations.
