Catherine Whall Smith . . . knows it SPREADS!!

I just recently realized how many people in countries outside the U. S. have viewed my Fiber Art. A quick check on my Blog Statistics showed that during the Pandemic in the past two years people in 42 countries have read my blog and viewed my art. The countries include are Australia, Austria, Argentina, Belgium, Bulgaria, Brazil, Bangladesh, Ecuador, Czech Republic, Canada, China, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Jordan, Malaysia, Mexico, Monaco, Netherlands, Nigeria, Pakistan, Puerto Rico, Russia, Slovakia, Sweden, Singapore, Spain, St. Martin, St. Vincent & Grenadines, Thailand, Turkey, Uganda, Ukraine, United Kingdom, United States, including Alaska, and Vietnam. I wonder what they thought.

Another event that will also be all over the world is the SAQA Auction – you can start bidding on Friday, April 29th 3pm EDT. The Spotlight Auction is an annual event that takes place at every SAQA conference. Donated pieces are sold through a silent auction at the conference banquet. But now it’s gone virtual and everyone – even YOU – can bid! A record-setting 328 pieces of artwork are available for bidding. All pieces can be previewed on Handbid – where you can register for the event and select your favorites. Each piece is mounted on an 8″ x 10″ mat with a 4.5″ x 6.5” opening and placed in a clear cellophane sleeve. Note that the digital image may vary slightly than the actual piece. PLEASE read the Spotlight Auction FAQs first!
