Simply put, that is what SALI is about. Bringing together artisans at every skill level to learn from each other, to recreate and rekindle the old world techniques while embracing and refining "new world" artistic expressions.

The Stencil Artisans League, Inc. has a proud history and a brilliant future. Each member brings a new perspective to our organization. SALI's not-for-profit status confirms our mission to preserve and protect the history of stencil arts. Our members also believe in fostering and supporting innovations in products, tools and techniques.
We are expecting to have another fantastic
convention. Each year the convention gets bigger, and it’s
amazing how many people are so willing to share their
knowledge and their talents. This whole industry has
grown in many different ways: from vendor’s schools,
manufacturers, and the talents of many people. And just
think, we get to spend a week with many of them!
If you are a new member of SALI and if this is your first
time at the convention, we would like to invite you to a
special time with other new attendees on Monday. This
is where you can get some great information about the
organization, meet the Board, and get a chance to hear
what to expect during the week.
Sheri Hoeger, the Mad Stencilist, will kick off our week
by speaking at the AGM on Tuesday. Sheri has been a
vendor, a teacher, and a long time SALI supporter. We
look forward to hearing Sheri speak! We are adding a
few things to our agenda that we really hope you will
enjoy. We are fortunate that we have three special
presentations: Ina Brosseau Marx, Dean Sickler, and
Adrienne van Dooren. All three will share a portion of
their vast knowledge. Because of the generosity of of
these people, all proceeds will be going to SALI.
Jennifer Ferguson, our Expo Chairman, has been working
with vendors for the trade show. This is always a fun
place to hang out and meet the manufacturers and use/
see the products available. Jeanine Lynch, our education
chair, has been working very hard with her committee
putting the class schedule together. Some wonderful
classes are being offered.
We will end our week with the professional keynote
speaker, Avish Parashar. Avish is an experienced,
innovative, energetic, and humorous speaker who uses
his 15+ years of experience performing, directing and
teaching improv comedy to deliver unique and refreshing
presentations to a variety of audiences. What a great
way to end our week! Check out our brouchure at http://www.sali.org/documents/SALI_07Brochure.pdf
